Theoretically, these may be good for you. ;) I like these just from the oven, with the insides still warm and slightly chewy. Recipe from somewhere on the internet???
- 3 egg whites
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 cup sugar (scant)
- 3 tablespoons cocoa, sifted (not Dutch)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 ounce semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees F and place oven racks in the middle positions.
- Line one or two sheet pans with foil or kitchen parchment. Set aside.
- Beat the egg whites with the salt to a soft peak stage (when the tops of the peaks fall over when whip is removed).
- Add the sugar slowly, beating until the mixture is very thick.
- Stir in the cocoa powder, vanilla, and chopped chocolate.
- Place walnut-size mounds of the batter on the sheet pans and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes until dry on the surface but still soft inside.
- Slide the foil or parchment with its cookies onto a cooling rack and cool for 5 minutes.
- Peel the foil or parchment off the still-warm cookies and cool them completely on rack.
OH MY GAWD! *LOL* These cookies are ADDICTIVE! I had a similar recipe, but it called for them to be baked for a little bit , then the heat turned off and sitting in the oven overnight. Which is good.... BUT!!! This recipe of baking them and then eating them right away ... *drool* *LOL* I must admit, I added some chocolate chips... I couldn't get my chocolate chopped up very fine, so I took the easy way out and just used the whole chips. Maybe about 1/2 cup or so... mini chips would be perfect. I have been making these every night for about a week!!! ;-) Thanks for a great recipe! :)
I love these type of cookies, they sell them at whole foods. I decided to try & bake them and pulled up this recipe. I wish I would have read a few others before making these. This recipe is seriously flawed in every aspect from ingredients to cook temp. I threw all mine in the garbage that's how awful they were.. Seriously 1/2 ounce of chocolate chips & 1 c of sugar???? Don't waste your time on this one. If I could give it a half star I would.
I loved this recipe, but I think it needs some changes. 1 cup of sugar is way, way, way too much. I cut it down to 1/2 cup. I used a splash of real vanilla, and 1 full ounce of semisweet chocolate. My oven at 140 degrees C led to some burning, but they were still yummy anyway! These made loads! My bestie and I were baking them and we decided to bake a pavlova instead. I lowered the temperature to 130 degrees C and it's still in the oven! I wonder how its going to turn out?
