  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick vegetable oil spray and set aside.
  2. Melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a glass bowl (microwave safe!) in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring twice. Cool slightly.
  3. Beat whites in a large bowl until they form soft peaks. (using an electric mixer is probably the best method to do this). Gradually beat in 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Continue beating until the mixture resembles a soft marshmallow cream.
  4. Whisk 1 cup of powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt in a medium bowl until throughly blended.
  5. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the egg white and powdered sugar mixture. Stir in the lukewarm chocolate and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. (the dough will become very stiff)
  6. Place 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a bowl. Roll 1 rounded tablespoon of dough into a ball; roll ball in the powdered sugar, coating thickly. Place of the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough, placing the balls about 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes; until cookies are puffed up and cracked at the top.
  8. Cool baking sheets on wire rack for about 10 mintues. Transfer cookies to wire rack to completely cool.
ENJOY!
