    Serves: 40 

    • 2 egg whites
    • 100g white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 20g unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 85g dark chocolate chips

    Directions
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:3hr15min 

    1. Preheat oven to 120 degrees C. Line two baking trays with baking paper, and set aside.
    2. In large metal or glass bowl, beat the egg whites on high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar while continuing to beat until they hold stiff peaks. Mix in the vanilla and cocoa on low speed, then fold in chocolate chips by hand. Drop small mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking trays, spacing 2cm apart.
    3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Turn off oven, and leave the drops in the oven for two more hours, or until centres are dry. Remove from tray and store in an airtight container.

    These are extremely simple to make, and I can also confirm that Splenda does work well if you’re looking for a healthy option. The trick to making these best is to keep the size small. The first batch I made the drops were about a table spoon in size and they got hollow with a gummy center. My second attempt I used almost level teaspoon size drops and they were truly amazing. When they come out bite sized they just melt in you mouth. I also agree that there is no need for more then 45 minutes of cool down time in the oven after cooking.  -  15 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Awesome! Can't believe these cookies are so low fat. I made 24 good size ones instead of 40 small drops. They were amazing! Will make again for sure 'cause I'm addicted...For weight watchers people, the whole recipe is only 12.5 pts and they are so sweet that you can even make it without chocolate chips and that would be only 8.5 pts total!!!  -  17 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    The first time I made these cookies, I think I might have overbeaten the eggs because the cookies which were baking on the lower rack of the oven kind of collapsed in on themselves in the middles...even so, they were incredibly yummy . I made a second batch today and before I started beating the eggs, I added a few drops of lemon juice (I heard that a little acidity can help the eggs keep their shape when whipped). This time the cookies baked perfectly - looked just as good as I knew they tasted!  -  15 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
