DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Grease the cookie sheets, and cover with parchment paper or wax paper.
  • (I usually spray the paper with non-stick vegetable spray).
  • Melt the chocolate chips over hot water in double boiler.
  • If you prefer (and this is the way I prefer doing it), you can melt them in the microwave.
  • Start by cooking for 20 seconds.
  • Stir and return to the microwave for another 10 seconds.
  • Stir again, and repeat the process until all the chips are melted.
  • Beat the egg whites until foamy, and then begin gradually adding the sugar while continuing to beat.
  • Beat until stiff.
  • Then beat in the vanilla and vinegar.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate and nuts, if desired.
  • Drop the batter, a teaspoon at a time, onto the sheets, leaving about 3 inches between each.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until firm to the touch.
  • Remove immediately from sheets.
  • Store in airtight container.
  • NOTE: Try not to store these for too long.
  • Although they will keep, they will dry out a bit and lose that gooeyness inside somewhat, which is what makes them so special.
