Hmm, I may have to take back what I said about Red House bakery being the best gluten free chocolate crinkle. It is still certainly the BEST gluten free chocolate cookie.

Pushkin’s chocolate crinkle (on the left in the photos) has the flavor, and the powdered sugar goodness of a real chocolate crinkle. Pushkin still hasn’t mastered eliminating the grainy texture that some gluten free flours have and this chocolate crinkle still has a bit of crunch. The cookie is light, moist, holds together well and chewy just like the chocolate crinkles I grew up with from Betty Crocker. It has a little bit of a sticky quality, which reminds me of rolling the dough in my hands into balls prior to rolling it in the powdered sugar.

The Red House Bakery Chocolate crinkle in comparison has less powdered sugar – it’s obviously not rolled in it like traditional crinkles but it makes a pretty darn good chocolate cookie. It’s a chocolate cookie you can sink your teeth into. It’s chewy but denser than the Pushkin crinkle. The chocolate is a different flavor than a typical crinkle but you may not notice it if you don’t eat one side by side like I am for this review. It’s moist and coats your mouth in delicious, decadent chocolate. Certainly a good cookie for getting your chocolate fix.
