Walnut Chocolate Chews

Author: Canadian Living

Chewy and chocolaty, these drop cookies are quick to make and sweet to eat. You can use granulated instead of superfine sugar – just finely grind it in a food processor. 

  • Portion size 36 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups walnut half (about 7 oz/200 g)
  • 2 egg white
  • 3/4 cups superfine sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder sifted

Method

Remove 18 walnut halves; split in half and set aside.

In food processor, grind remaining walnuts to make 1-1/2 cups (375 mL); set aside.

In bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold in sugar, cocoa powder and ground walnuts.

Drop by scant 1 tbsp (15 mL) onto parchment paper–lined baking sheet; top each with walnut piece. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until set, 12 to 14 minutes. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 weeks.)
