  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  2. Mix confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a large bowl. Beat egg whites and vanilla extract into the sugar mixture until thick and batter-like; add chocolate chips and stir.
  3. Scoop batter by tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked, 12 to 14 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You're looking for a brownie-like, thick, and fudgy batter consistency after adding the eggs. If it seems too thick, add another egg white and then a fourth if it still seems too thick.
  • I put them in the fridge to chill, which makes them much easier to get off parchment.

These are incredible! They remind me of the edges of a brownie, very chewy and delicious! I did add one extra egg white to the batter and chose to add walnuts to half the batter. I baked them fo...

These cookies were so good! I did change the recipe a bit in that I added three tablespoons of butter and about a half teaspoon of salt and used one cup of milk chocolate chips and a half cup...

Really good, chocolatey and like meringue. But use a teaspoon rather than a tablespoon to drop onto cookie sheet if you want guest-sized cookies. They spread out while baking.

These were pretty good and easy. They were more meringue-like than I expected. Definitely chewy and I liked the crunch on the outside. I added little milk instead of an additional egg white to t...

This is it. My favorite cookie. Rich, chocolatey, crisp, and chewy. Always gone in an hour or two.
