  • Yield: 24 servings ( Serving Size: 1 cookie )
  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cook time:10 Minutes
  • Cooling time:10 Minutes


  • 1 1/2 cup(s) bittersweet chocolate chips divided
  • 3 large egg whites room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cup(s) powdered sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) 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.
