These are delicious. It was a little difficult to "fold" the melted chocolate chips into the eggwhite mixture, as the chocolate tended to harden with contact with the cool ingredients. So I actually had to mix quite vigorously to incorporate all of the ingredients. They turned out fine though. I took them even one step further by melting additional chocolate chips to dip the bottoms of the cookies in after they were baked and cooled.
