Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp favorite extract (I like vanilla, raspberry or strawberry!)
  • 2 cups chocolate candy melts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 170°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Using either a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Slowly and gradually add in the sugar, mixing well in between each addition. 
  • Mix in the extract and gel food coloring if desired.
  • Transfer the cookie batter to a large piping bag. 
  • Pipe the cookies out onto the parchment paper. The cookies will not spread at all while baking.
  • Bake at 170° for 2 hours. 
  • Remove the cookies from the oven after they have baked for 2 hours and allow the cookies to cool on the pan. 
  • While the cookies are cooling, melt the chocolate candy melts. Spread a thin layer onto the bottom of each cookie and then drizzle the remaining chocolate on top.
