Chocolate Cookies!

10 posts in this topic

So I was experimenting in the kitchen today, and I made a new recipe.

What you're going to do is this:

65 grams brown sugar and 5 tablespoons of butter/margarine/substitute. Combine them in a bowl and cream together until nice and smooth. Add one or two egg-whites.

In another bowl, put in 100 - 225 grams of pure, unsweetened REAL cocoa powder. Make sure all the bumps and clumps are out. Then put mixture of butter, eggs and sugar in it. Add 30 or 40 grams of powder sugar. Mix all of this together, and add chocolate-chips, currants, raisins, or whatever you like. When you're mixing it, if it's too dry, add more egg-white or a bit of milk.

Put your oven on gas mark 6/400Farhenheit/204Celsius and bake for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the tops are slightly soft. Or, you can bake them until your preferred consistency.

You can easily substitute these ingredients for alternatives, but there is no flour, baking powder, but it's not healthy either so don't make them often :P

They're SOOOOOOOO rich and CHOCOLATEY! And they're GLUTEN FREE!

I know, you must be thinking I'm absolutely mad, but I wanted to bake SOMETHING and so I just figured this out!

Yes, I love meringue cookies. They don't love me, though. Too much sugar.

I have a killer recipe for blood orange and almond meringue cookies if you want it. Like eating perfume. Hubs told me not to make them again because he couldn't stop.

Orange Meringue Kisses - 3 dozen

Preheat oven to 250 F

4 egg whites

1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. grated orange rind ( I used blood orange)

1 tsp. orange juice ( I used blood orange)

1 cup finely chopped pecans ( I used almond meal)

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add sugar. Beat until stiff. Fold in rind, juice and pecans. Drop by the heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheets lined with paper. Bake 45+ minutes.

My notes: Bake til HARD. You want a hard meringue. You don't want them to be soft at all.

I made a chocolate version, omitting orange ingredients above, and adding the ingredients below. It wasn't nearly as good.

1 Tbsp. cocoa

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Whoa! I didn't combine it! I made two versions - the orange (which had no chocolate), and the chocolate (which had no orange).

I'm going to clarify that up top..,,

No worries. I was thinking of how much I liked a chocolate and orange candy bar & the recipe sounded like it would be good combination. Your recipe sounds delicious as stated. Thanks for posting it.

Yes thank you so much for posting that! I have to try it once I gather the ingredients.

On another note, for my recipe, I've discovered that if you add your preferred amount of cooked quinoa, they come out with a lovely texture and slight tang. You can blend the quinoa, or put it in whole. It's great. The only problem is having to watch it being cooked, as I don't know the length that it would be. It's different for each person.

But that recipe, pricklypear, thank you so much!
