Holy Spoons

The gift of hospitality sometimes comes with food.

Chocolate Stars


These are sweet, sweet, SWEET!! But if you want to lessen the guilt, they are also no cholesterol, fat-free and gluten-free, too! 🙂

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F


– 3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
– 1 to 2 lbs powdered sugar (see directions)
– 3 egg whites, unbeatened
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– granulated sugar for rolling out dough

Melt chocolate, add confectioner’s sugar and egg whites. Mix with spoon, not a beater. Keep adding sugar until the dough is thick and paste-like. Dough should hold together and be stiff enough to roll with out sticking.

Roll out on granulated sugar with more sugar in top; dough should be about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out with small cookie cutter. Place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake about 10 minutes or until cookie is firm and there is a hard crust on top. They are like crunchy chocolate meringues. Allow to cool on cookie sheets. Remove to rack to cool completely.

The original recipe says to use 1 pound of confectioner’s sugar. I needed a lot more to keep the cookies from spreading.

We are thinking of trying a little peppermint extract in the dough the next time…
