Chocolate Meringue Cookies~

Recipe from The Cafe Sucre Farine~

3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups chocolate chips

4 egg whites

1 tablespoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350º. Line baking sheets with parchment and spray with non stick cooking spray.

Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in a bowl. Stir in chocolate chips. Add egg whites and vanilla, and mix  till just moistened. Do not over-mix batter.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake till the tops are slightly cracked and glossy, about 15 minutes. Cool only briefly before moving to a cooling rack. Cookies are fragile, but they will stick to parchment if not removed shortly after baking.
