Dark Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Recipe orginally found on Picklee!
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
3 large egg whites, room temperature
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar- divided into 2 1 cup portions and 1 1/2 cup portion
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large cooking sheet with non-stick spray. Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave until fully melted. Cool slightly. Using a hand mixer, beat room temperature egg whites into soft peaks. Gradually beat in 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Add 1 cup powdered sugar, salt, cocoa powder and cornstarch to the batter and mix until combined. Add in melted chocolate chips and 1/2 cup whole chocolate chips. Dough will become very thick. Using a teaspoon, roll cooking into balls with hands and then roll through reserved powdered sugar. Place balls of dough evenly about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake in oven until cookies crack on top and are set- about 10 minutes. Cool on a cookie rack and enjoy!
