I just made these fantastic Deep Dark Chocolate cookies from Picklee. Inside is a rich dense brownie like center, while outside the crust is crunchy, almost like a meringue. This is one of my new favorite recipes, the cookies are so addicting!
Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies (~24 cookies)
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces)
3 large egg whites, room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar, divided (plus 1/2 cup for cookie coating)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper or nonstick spray.
Melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a glass bowl using a microwave. Heat in 30 second intervals until it is all melted.
Using electric mixer, beat egg whites in a large bowl to form soft peaks.
Then slowly add 1 cup of sugar. Continue beating until the mixture looks like a version of home-made fluff.
