  • Nonstick Vegetable Spray
  • 1 1/2 Cups Divided Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Large Egg Whites at Room Temperature
  • 2 1/2 Cups Divided Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick spray.
  • Melt 1 cup chocolate chips in glass bowl in the microwave, stirring twice, about 2 minutes. Cool slightly.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat whites in large bowl to soft peaks. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar. Continue beating until mixture resembles soft marshmallow creme.
  • Whisk 1 cup sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt in medium bowl to blend.
  • On low speed, beat dry ingredients into meringue. Stir in lukewarm chocolate and 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dough will become very stiff).
  • Place 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl. Roll 1 rounded tablespoon dough into ball; roll in sugar, coating thickly. Place on prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and tops crack, about 10 minutes. Cool on sheets on rack 10 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack.
