  • 2 ¼ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips I like to use mini chips but regular are also fine
  • 1 cup toffee bits
  1. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper. Lightly spray the parchment with cooking spray. (Yes, grease the parchment; these cookies are sticky and need to be baked on a greased surface.)
  2. Whisk together the egg whites and vanilla for 20-30 seconds until frothy.
  3. In a separate medium-size bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa and salt.

  4. Add the egg white mixture and stir until well-combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and stir again until smooth. The sticky batter should be the consistency of a very thick syrup. (See Café Tips above in the post.)
  5. Add the chips and toffee bits, reserving ¼ for the topping, if desired. Stir to combine.
  6. Drop the syrupy batter onto the prepared baking sheets (about 1 ½ tablespoons each) and spread with a spoon to form a circle. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheets for 30 minutes, while you preheat your oven to 350°F.
  7. Bake the cookies for 8 minutes. If using the toppings, remove from the oven and sprinkle with some of the reserved chips and toffee bits. Return to the oven for 2 minutes.

  8. If not using the topping, bake for 9-10 minutes. The tops should be somewhat shiny and develop faintly crackly tops.
  9. If you’re not using any chips or toffee bits the cookies will be done a little sooner, closer to 8 minutes.
