I found this recipe in my Everyday Food magazine in January (anyone seeing a trend here?). It was a nice change from all the heavy rich desserts that show up around the holidays. I made a batch of these and took half of them into work. Everyone made fast work of them in the staff lounge! You know teachers and anything sweet!

Ingredients

Makes 48

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and cornstarch; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt on medium speed until frothy. Beating constantly, add sugar mixture 1 tablespoon at a time; beat until stiff, glossy peaks form, 6 to 8 minutes total (scrape down the bowl halfway through). Add espresso powder and cocoa; beat until well blended. With a rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Drop batter by level tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, about 1 inch apart. Bake until crisp, about 40 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Cool completely on sheets, about 20 minutes.
