These cookies develop a hard outer-layer that often cracks open and a moist and chewy interior. They have an intense chocolate flavor, reminiscent of fudgy brownies.

  2. Beat egg whites until frothy.
  3. Sift sugar, cocoa and flour into the whites.
  4. Add water.
  5. Continue beating on high for a few minutes until the mixture thickens.
  6. Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.

The dough was incredibly thick. I couldn't fold in nuts and chips as much as stir them in with a wooden spoon and a lot of elbow grease. Not sure what I did wrong or what I would do different - yet. I won't give up on this one. But they are exactly as described - hard outer layer with cracks tasting verymuch like brownies.

Super yummy, very healthy, and incredibly addictive! A great way to get your chocolate fix. Used 3 large egg whites, otherwise as stated. My cookies turned out just as the chef described, intense chocolate flavor, brownie-like on the inside, and crackled on the outside. Definitely one you'll have to try to believe! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
