Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir well, and set aside.
Combine 3/4 cup chocolate morsels and oil in a small saucepan; cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring constantly. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into a large bowl, and let cool 5 minutes. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, water, vanilla extract, and egg whites to chocolate mixture; stir well. Stir in flour mixture and remaining chocolate morsels.
Drop dough by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes or until firm. Remove cookies from pans; let cool on wire racks.
Great cookie. However the minuses are the following:
A bit too sweet
Lacks depth of chocolate flavor
So, the next time I will reduce powdered sugar to 1/3 cup and add a tablespoon of instant coffee.
But I loved the texture. It's soft and chewy.
Great cookie recipe. I was looking for one to use the 3 leftover egg whites when I made ice cream and these were perfect. Nice chewy brownie like cookie. I used regular chocolate chips instead on mini and thought they were fine. Next time I may add nuts
Used this as a base recipe for chocolate mint cookies and they turned out fantastic! I lightened up the recipe by using 1/3 C pwd sugar and 1 C Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar blend in place of the regular brown sugar. I used peppermint extract (1-1.5 tsp?) instead of vanilla, and folded in 1/2 Andes mint chips, 1/2 mini choc chips. Will definitely make again.
I made these because all the ingredients were in my kitchen. My family emjoyed them very much. The dough is sticky but I didn't find this to be a problem. I baked the cookies according to the appropriate time and they came out looking somewhat gooey, but they perfect and chewy and they have an almost cake-like texture.
