A wonderful union of chocolate and mint. Also delicious with white chocolate chips and vanilla in place of the mint.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Egg white(s)

3 large, at room temperature

Cream of tartar

½ tsp(s)

Sugar

½ cup(s), divided

Unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tbsp(s)

Cornstarch

1 tbsp(s)

Mint extract

½ tsp(s)

Mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a large cookie sheet with cooking spray or top with parchment paper (use two cookie sheets if necessary).
  2. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, whip egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add cream of tartar and 1/4 cup sugar; beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. In another small bowl, mix cocoa, cornstarch and remaining 1/4 cup sugar.
  4. Fold cocoa mixture and mint extract into egg whites; fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop 24 heaping tablespoons of batter onto prepared cookie sheet, about 2-inches apart; bake in upper 1/3 of oven until cookies flatten out, about 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for 1 or 2 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.
