These cookies are deadly, in a death-by-chocolate sort of way. Chewy and crisp on the outside and gooey and moist on the inside – with melty chocolate chips, the crunch of almonds, and the fluffiness of marshmallows.
The thing that makes these cookies really unique is that the only wet ingredient is egg whites. No butter, no oil. Nuthin. Just the whites of three eggs. That’s how you get that beautiful, shiny crackle exterior and fudgy interior.
Pastor Alaska, the dark-chocolate lover in our household is very, very fond of these intensely chocolatey cookies. And my oldest son, while chewing his second bite, asked, “You’re going to put these on the blog, right?” However, if you’re not a dark chocolate fan, I would suggest substituting white chocolate chips for the semi-sweet in this recipe to help cut through the chocolate. Either way, they’re something special. Be sure to have your glass of milk ready.
