These cookies are a new favorite version of our Hot Cocoa Cookies. We think they are magical because they have no flour and create the coolest texture for a cookie. The outside is thin and crispy, and the inside is chewy and gooey! Doesn't that sound amazing? With white chocolate and almond extract, they are filled with some of our greatest flavors. Make a batch today!
Chocolate Magic Cookies
Makes 1 1/2 dozen
3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup baking cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa, and salt. Add the egg whites, vanilla, and almond extract and beat until it comes together in a thick batter. Stir in the chocolate and white chips. Using a cookie scoop, scoop 12 mounds onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until the tops are glossy and starting to crack. Allow to cool a few minutes on the pan before moving to a cooling rack.
Gather all your ingredients. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients, then add the egg whites, vanilla, and almond extract. I always start with 3 eggs, and it's enough if they are large. Beat until a thick batter forms. Stir in the chocolate and white chips.
Using a cookie scoop, place 12 scoops onto a parchment or silicone mat lined baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 12 -13 minutes.
Let them cool for 2-3 minutes on the pan before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. This step is important! Because the center is soft and gooey, we need to let them set and cook a little more on the pan.
They are so delicious and fun to eat. The outside texture is similar to meringues, but thin.
The centers are just a little bit gooey and chewy, full of melted chocolate and white chocolate!
You can't go wrong with these cookies. And since they don't use any weird flours, you can make them easily! Naturally gluten free recipes are the best.
