Little Chocolate Pillow Fluffs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SweetPnut

These have the perfect amount of chocolate flavor and are light in your mouh! I make them without the walnuts though due to an allergy but I'm sure those only add to the flavor. Found these in a cookbook I bought when I was browsing at Borders.

Actually, these turned out 1-star for me, but it might be my mistake. I think I beat the egg whites too long? They came out flat, and because I didn't know how long to cook them (no approx. time given), they burned, even though I tried to keep a close eye on them. They never cracked, probably because they were so flat. *sigh*

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; grease the paper.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until frothy.
  4. Sift the sugar, cocoa, flour and coffee into the whites.
  5. Add the water and continue beating on low speed to blend, then on high for a few minutes until the mixture thickens.
  6. With a rubber spatula, fold in the walnuts.
  7. Place generous spoonfuls of the mixture 1 inch apart on the baking sheets.
  8. Bake until firm, about 12-15 minutes, and cracked on top but soft on the inside.
  9. The softness really makes them great!
  10. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
