Crinkle cookies, crispy on the outside, with a ‘sweet’ surprise, concealed on the inside, and then to add to the decadent flavor, covered in powdered sugar.


Units Scale
  • 3 cups Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour – Bob’s Red Mill
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup softened to room temperature unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 2 Extra large room-temperature eggs
  • 1 cup powdered sugar + Additional powdered sugar for dusting (optional, but I prefer to use it, just a nice extra touch of sweetness as a special treat).


  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Mix GF flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Beat the sugar, softened butter, and vanilla with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time, till smooth.
  5. Beat flour mixture into sugar mixture until well blended.
  6. If necessary, use a spatula to do the last bit of mixing to ensure all the flour is blended in well and you have a smooth ball of dough.
  7. Cover and let dough rest at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Shape dough into balls (I managed to get 48 cookies out of this batch), and hide a Chocolate Truffle or bite-size Twix in the middle, as an extra little surprise.
  9. Use enough dough to cover each Truffle or Twix.
  10. What a fun way to surprise your guests when they bite into this moreish cookie.
  11. Place 1 cup powdered sugar in a bowl and roll each raw cookie in sugar.
  12. Pack out on a parchment cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for ±18 minutes, or until the edges turned light brown.
  13. Let them cool slightly before moving them to a cooling rack and sprinkle/dust again with additional sugar.
  14. Now let it cool completely before you store them in an airtight container.

  1. Oh my goodness Esme, I cannot wait to try this! I am gluten free and always searching for new recipes to try. I get bored with the same old, same old. This is a new one for me. Thank you for sharing with Whimsy Home Wednesday.

    • Hi Cara
      Thanks for dropping in and I am so happy that you will try this GF Chocolate Truffle and Twix Crinkles Cookies recipe. I have adapted this to suit my own needs so this is different from what the Crinkles Cookies would be. I always adapt and try out it ‘my way’ Some you win and some you loose, but this is a winner. Enjoy it.

  2. Oh yes I did just copy this recipe! Thanks Esme. I recently bought ‘Bobs’ gluten free flour mix. I haven’t used it yet, but this recipe will probably be the first experiment. Why is it called 1 to 1 in the recipe? 🙂

  3. These look wonderful – and I’m thrilled to see that they are gluten free. I can’t have the Twix, but I love the idea of hiding a GF truffle. Thanks for sharing.
