Recipe Notes

  • The number of cookies will depend on the size of the balls you form.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container.

Here's how to make them: 

  1. Whisk together the cocoa powder and powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Add the egg whites and mix until they are absorbed into the dry ingredients. (This may take a few minutes.) The batter will be thick and sticky. 
  3. Put balls (about 2 tablespoons) onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for about 15 to 18 minutes or until they puff up and are shiny. 
  4. Remove and cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes or so before removing to cool completely.
