Rocky Road Cookies

This was a rather odd cookie. It ends up similar to a meringue cookie because it has no flour and uses only egg whites. That being said, it was yummy and would pair excellently with coffee as a light tasting treat for guests. My hubby loved them even though they were different.

3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 extra large egg whites
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2.5 oz sliced almonds, toasted
1 cup mini marshmallows
Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk in the salt. Add the egg whites and vanilla and whisk until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and almonds.
Use a disher to portion out small mounds on to the parchment paper, then top each cookie with 4-5 marshmallows. Pop into the freezer for 5 minutes to chill slightly (this prevents them from spreading too much in the oven).
Bake for 12-13 minutes until the marshmallows are golden brown. Let the cookies sit on the paper for a few minutes to set, before moving them to a wire rack to cool.
