{Flourless} Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies


I haven't baked anything in a few weeks so the past few nights I've been flipping through some of my favorite cookbooks trying to find something to bake.  I usually start this around 9:30 pm and then I realize I'll probably be washing dishes and cleaning up around 11 pm-- and then I change my mind and just go watch a movie.  Last night I stumbled on to this recipe on Pinterest- just a few ingredients, one bowl, chocolate? I can do that.  For some reason, cookies are not my thing.  I manage to mess them up more often than not but let me tell you- these could not be any easier!  They are so, so, so good!  The egg whites make them bake up with this almost brownie-like flake crust on top but they're gooey fudge inside.  And the next day? They're still gooey inside!  These cookies have earned themselves a spot in my recipe box.


{Flourless} Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 to 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Mix powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl.
3. Whisk in vanilla and egg whites.  Start with 2 egg whites and add one more at a time until the batter reaches near-brownie consistency.
4. Fold in chocolate chips.
5. Using a 1- 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop, drop cookie dough on to cookie sheet.
6. Bake 12-14 minutes until they have a glossy cracked top.  (12 minutes was perfect for my oven as I wanted the centers to remain really soft.)


I never did manage to wash the dishes I used.  They're still in the sink.  I did manage to fill them full of water to "let them soak".  That's the excuse I use to justify leaving dishes in the sink for two days.  They're "soaking".

ETA: I made another 3 dozen for Todd to take to work and they were apparently gone by 8:45am.   He says they're some of the best cookies he's ever had.  Pretty bold claim!

  10. This is a great recipe! I'm definitely going to have to save it so I can try to make it. Hopefully they turn it. The last time I tried to make cake/brownie-like cookies, they tasted HORRIBLE! Ha! But these look delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

    I just wanted to let you know about a great giveaway from Shabby Apple that I'm hosting right now! Hope you enter!
