Crispy and chewy at the same time, intensely chocolatey and rich, these cookies are closer in flavor to a brownie than a traditional cookie. I was craving something sweet and chocolate this weekend, but I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of time baking.
I’ve had this recipe saved to try for a while now and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. It only took a few minutes to whisk the batter together and these cookies were in the oven in very little time at all. For the chocolate lover in your life, these cookies are the ultimate treat!

- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 3/4 cups dutch process cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 large egg
- 2/3 cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the dry ingredients and add the eggs. Whisk again until smooth. (Using an electric mixer will make this even easier, but it's simple enough by hand as well.) Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Drop by tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes, until the cookies are just set. They should be puffy and cracked across the top. Let cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Enjoy!
These cookies are almost ridiculously easy to make. Whisk together the cocoa and the sugar, add a pinch of salt and then whisk in the eggs. Toss a handful of chocolate chips in right at the end and you're done. The batter will be more liquid than traditional cookie dough, but don't worry, it works.
