So, I am never one to shy away from full fat/full calorie baked goods. I mean, come on, all that butter and sugar is what MAKES many desserts taste so darn good! Well, these little devils have sugar but are butterless and let me tell you, they deserve a place at the top of the dessert chain right along my Death by Chocolate Brownies (pic and recipe yet to be blogged about) and my Basic Blondies! I first saw this recipe a while back on a website for Weight Watcher users (I am not on WW but like to lurk around different boards). This recipe reappeared on TheNest’s cooking board and I knew I had to make them. These cookies are so chocolatey, so rich and so sweet that you will swear you have died and gone to heaven. The best part is, these have all the flavor and texture as butter hoarding baked rivals but are much lower in fat, making them a fairly “sinless” dessert when looking at the alternative baked goods. I wouldn’t call these a health food but I would call these little devils DELISH! Especially with a scoop of FroYo sandwiched between two of them.
1 cup cocoa powder, (I used Ghiradeli unsweetened)
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the egg whites and vanilla with a fork.
