Hands-on - 30 min.
Oven - 30 min.



egg whites 3
salt 1/8 tsp
sugar 1 cup
water 2 tsp
vanilla extract 1 tsp
unsweetened cocoa powder 3 T


  • Preheat oven at 250°.
  • Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper.
  • Place egg whites and salt in medium bowl. Whip with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add 1/2 cup of the sugar to egg whites while constantly whipping.
  • Combine water and vanilla extract in a cup. Add to mix, a few drops at a time, alternating with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar while constantly whipping.
  • Flake cocoa powder with a fork to break clumps. Sift if necessary. Fold completely into mix.
  • Place bite-size rounded teaspoons (not tablespoons) of batter onto the wax paper-lined sheets.
  • Bake approximately 30 minutes. They will be dry on the outside, but moist and lava-like on the inside. They will retain their shape. (If they become completely dry like Styrofoam, they are overbaked.)
  • While kisses are still hot, remove from wax paper and place on a wire rack so they will not stick.
  • After cooling, store kisses in an airtight container.
