Yield: Makes about 24

Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Made without butter or flour, these dense, chewy cookies will satisfy even the most intense chocolate craving.
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces), divided
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 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).

Place 1/2 cup sugar in bowl. Roll 1 rounded tablespoon dough into ball; roll in sugar, coating thickly. Place on prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and tops crack, about 10 minutes. Cool on sheets on rack 10 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool.


  1. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to
    take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell
    phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic blog!

  2. At this time it sounds like Drupal is the best blogging platform out
    there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are
    using on your blog?
