  • 3 large egg whites (90 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar (250 grams)
  • 1 cup Dutch process cocoa powder (85 grams)
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips


  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and spray the parchment with cooking spray. Normally you wouldn't use cooking spray on parchment, but with these types of cookies it helps. They are sticky!
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg whites, vanilla, sugar, cocoa powder and salt. The mixture should be very thick and may cling to the whisk. Do your best to get it all mixed and scraper off the whisk.
  • With a heavy duty scraper or big spoon, stir in the chips.
  • Using a medium size cookie scoop, scoop about 16 portions (8 on each sheet). Allow dough to sit for 20 minutes while you preheat the oven. Preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake cookies one sheet at a time for 10 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheets, then peel off and let cool. Top with flaky sea salt if desired.
