Recipe by blucoat
READY IN: 40mins


  • nonstick vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 12
    cups bittersweet chocolate chips, divided (about 9 ounces)
  • 3
    large egg whites, room temperature
  • 2
    cups powdered sugar, divided (can also use granulated sugar)
  • 12
    cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1
    tablespoon cornstarch
  • 14
    teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 400°F Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick spray. Melt 1 cup chocolate chips in glass bowl in microwave, stirring twice, about 2 minutes. Cool slightly.
  • Using electric mixer, beat whites in large bowl to soft peaks. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar. Continue beating until mixture resembles soft marshmallow creme.
  • Whisk 1 cup sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt in medium bowl to blend. On low speed, beat dry ingredients into meringue. Stir in lukewarm chocolate and 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dough will become very stiff).
  • Roll 1 rounded tablespoon dough into ball (can coat in additional sugar if you want).
  • Place on prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and tops crack, about 8-10 minutes (don't overbake!). Cool on sheets on rack 10 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool.
