A few weeks ago we made these.
Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces), divided
3 large egg whites, room temperature
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided (I used 2 cups)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
So, that looks pretty dogone awesome, right? Easy too, don’ it? The photo of the cookie alone looks great.
We tried this, it turned out good, but we did have some mishaps along the way. My big sis’ saw this on Pinterest, and decided it looked to good not to try.
So she got on her cutesy apron, and was determined to make cookies.
It started looking like cookies, smelt like them, and there was some sort of chocolate in a measuring cup, she put it in the microwave, (Not quite sure why, but she did.) and the sweet smell of chocolate, was replaced with a somewhat burnt chocolate smell. I was too curious not to see what happened, so I walked into the kitchen sniffing as I went. “What cha’ do-in’?” She promptly replied. “Want some chocolate?” I was a little bit dubious, so I picked up the cup, and smelt it. Yup, that was the smell. “Well, maybe it tastes good.” I thought. I had an idea. I picked the cup up again and brought it over to my sweet little brother, as a taste test. “Want some?” Alfred (My brother) ignored the burnt smell, and took a small amount on his finger, tasted it, and liked it, apparentlly, because he started eating it. “Ok, that works.” I thought. Though, I still doubted it, so I sat back down at the computer. I noticed that soon after Alfred started eatting, (My little sister.) Rose came over and started eating it. After her came my other sister Andie, she tasted it, and liked it. There were 3 people eating it, so it had to be good. I tried it. It wasn’t awful, but I didn’t love it.
My sister did infact make delicious cookies. She didn’t do it wrong, she just found a way not to make cookies.
