If you don't have any white chocolate around, use 1 cup chocolate chips, or a combination of chopped dark and milk chocolate. Remember -- the higher the quality of chocolate you use, the better your cookies will be!
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup strong coffee, cooled
1/3 cup chocolate chips or chunks
2/3 cup chopped white chocolate
In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and brown sugar until well blended -- it will have the consistency of wet sand. Add egg whites and vanilla and beat until smooth.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture and the coffee to the sugar mixture, and stir by hand until almost combined; add the chocolate chips and chunks and stir until just blended. Do not overmix.
Drop spoonfuls of dough about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until just set around the edges but still soft in the middle. Do not overbake. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
