Chocolate Hazelnut Macaroons

Introduction

My Valentine's Day Treat for ME! My Valentine's Day Treat for ME!
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    3 egg whites
    3/4 c sugar
    1/2 cup cocoa powder
    1/2 t Vanilla extract
    1/4c chopped Hazelnuts

Directions

Make sure beater blades and bowls are completely free of residual grease or oils and dry.

Combine cocoa and sugar in a small bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine egg whites and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until they are frothy, then increase to high speed and beat until soft peaks form .

Gradually add the sugar/ cocoa powder mixture while continuing to beat on high speed, occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl with a clean rubber spatula, until it is incorporated and the mixture reaches the consistency of a thick pudding.

I used my food chopper to more finely chop the hazelnuts (put 1/4 c chopped packaged nuts in the chopper and pulsed a few times to get smaller bits)

Fold nuts into 1/2 of the egg mixture and then fold back into the remaining egg mixture.

Drop by sightly rounded teaspoonfuls onto a non-stick cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam (or other).

Bake for apprx. 20 minutes in an oven that has been pre-heated to 325 degrees. The edges should be firm. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes and then remove to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Makes 32 cookies. Nutrition information is figured at 2 cookies per serving.
