  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Grease parchment paper.
  2. Combine cocoa powder, white sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Mix in confectioners' sugar, egg whites, vanilla extract, and salt until the dough is smooth. Fold in marshmallows.
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven, rotating halfway through baking, until edges are set, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets. Remove carefully, as centers are soft.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Coconut sugar may be substituted for white sugar, if desired.

What sticks to greased parchment paper even after 20 minutes in the fridge? This cookie. The tase is great but I can’t bring the sheets to cookie swap so I am voting NO on this recipe.
