Chocolate Clouds

For me, a "Christmas cookie" doesn't have to be green or red or shaped like something "Christmasy"....it just has to be made with love.....and be delicious!  These cookies are sooooooo good.  My son and I made two batches today and each batch made around 35 cookies.  Not only are they good....they are so easy to make (which comes in handy when you have culinary challenges like me!).

Im not sure where the recipe is from....I know I got it from somewhere a few years ago, I just dont remember where.

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl bowl beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and vanilla and continue beating until soft peaks hold, sugar is dissolved, and mixture is glossy. Sift cocoa into the bowl and gently fold until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.  Use a spoon to drop plops of mixture onto sprayed cookie sheets. Bake at 300 for 35-40 minutes or just until dry. Carefully peel off paper, cool completely.  (We baked our 30 minutes)

 licking the beaters is a must


 hee hee
(Im not sure what inspired the headband wearing but he's had it on for two days!  LOL LOL)

This is our second batch cooling....the first batch didnt crack like this, but no worries - the cookies were still intact and tasted just as good.

  1. I wonder how these would taste with some ground up candy canes sprinkled on them... ?

  2. If you like chocolate and mint....they would taste great!

  3. My mom made these every Christmas, without the cocoa. She added coconut and mini choc. chips. They were my favorites, and for some reason, I can NOT make them myself. A couple of years ago, I even attempted them with my mom and sister in law/baker extreme stnding right there to guide me, and they still didn't come out right. :-( I will not give up, but I simply can't say these are easy...

  4. Today my 4 year old and I tackled these. I really enjoyed watching her put the cookies on the sheet herself--in rows! They turned out fantastic! I love simple recipes, without too many ingredients, but that still produce something special. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I was wondering if anyone had tried them! Thanks for sharing. Glad you enjoyed making them.

  6. Looks yummy! I love that he's wearing the headband - very cute!

  7. Did you use a 12oz bag of chips? Thanks!

  8. yes....and you can use mini choc chips, too....whichever
