These are very similar to the typical merinque type cookie but w/an added surprise. To make it truly a surprise (as suggested by 2Bleu) try using white-chocochips. :-) (After reading reviews, I have altered the ingredient list).

Delicious! I hate to admit it but I increased the sugar to 2/3 cup but only used 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. I'm not a huge chocolate fan so next time I will reduce the chips to 2/3 cup. Oh, I also added 1 tsp of vanilla when folding in the chocolate chips. Baked them for the required time and let them sit in the oven afterward for 8 hours. Would have gotten them out sooner but I was busy doing something else. These did spread on me so next time I will space them further apart and use 2 cookie sheets. I am very happy with the results. Definitely use parchment paper, makes life so easy!

These cookies went over really well with my 'taste panel' (9&7). They want me to make these 'all the time' now :) I only got 16 cookies though, not sure what i did wrong because they could not be much smaller. Perhaps next time I will increase the egg white mix and keep the chocolate the same, they could definitely bear some extra egg white. Thanks for sharing! Made for Holiday Tag.

Mmmmm!!! Coffee, these cookies are divine! They are so chock full of chocolate and taste oh so yummy! Its like biting into soft, gooey goodness! :) I used a mix of white and dark chocolate, which went really well with this recipe. Even though I used a little less chocolate than called for it was still plenty! I also used only 1 tbs or so of sugar, cause the chocolate added so much sweetness. The finished cookies strongly reminded me of a cookie type my granny used to put into birthday parcels for my sis n me. Yummo! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wickedly tasty treat with us, Coffee! :) Made and reviewed for Veg'n'Swap #14 August 09, where you were our VIP! :)
