  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I used Hershey's Dark
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons cacao nibs I omitted


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Add the egg whites and egg and whisk together thoroughly.
  • Gently fold in the chopped chocolate and cacao nibs if using.
  • Use a cookie scoop (or two spoons) to portion out the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets. Space them about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for about 14-16 minutes, or until the cookies are puffy, cracked in the middle and set on the sides. They may look slightly underdone, and that is OK.
  • Remove from the oven and allow them to firm up while cooling.


Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for about 5 days.
