october cookie: flourless rocky road chocolate chip cookies
we had a cool day in october so I was looking for a meringue-like cookie that would go well with hot chocolate. I adapted this recipe slightly from here & added marshmallows, which was a great addition. flourless rocky road chocolate chip cookies
3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (dutch if you have it)
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (or heck, just dump the whole bag in if you're feeling crazy)
preheat oven to 350.
in a large bowl, mix together powdered sugar, cocoa powder and sea salt. add in vanilla. whisk in egg whites until just moistened. add in marshmallows & chocolate chips. pop in the fridge for about 20 minute so that the dough becomes cool (this will keep them from spreading when they bake).
spoon batter onto cookie sheets in small mounds.
bake for 12 minutes or until tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
