These cookies are incredibly quick and easy to make. If you serve them at a dinner party (as Susan’s mom would), be prepared to hand over the recipe as there will be no shortage of requests!
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
6-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Beat egg whites, slowly adding in sugar, until the mixture forms soft peaks.
Gently fold in melted, cooled chocolate, vanilla and nuts, and stir just until blended.
Drop by spoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto a greased baking sheet.
Bake 12 minutes in 350° oven.
Cool for 2 minutes, then transfer to platter
