Fudgy Flourless Chocolate Walnut Cookies

contest winner icon

Makes 16 cookies (really easy!)


  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 and 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites (no yolk)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix together cornstarch, salt, cocoa, and powdered sugar. Add egg whites and stir. You'll think there's not enough liquid, but I promise it'll suddenly start looking like fudge before long! As soon as it does, add walnuts and stir.

Cover two cookie sheets or pans with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop (like an ice cream scoop, only much smaller) put 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet.

Bake at 300 degrees F for about 18 minutes, until they look a little shiny and cracked.

Cool for a bit if you can stand waiting. Go on, try, I dare you! When hot, they are moist and very fudgy inside, with a touch of crispiness on the outside. When fully cooled, they settle into a rich chewy cookie center.

Hint: I like to toast the walnuts before putting into cookies, if there's time. To hurry it along, I often chop the nuts, put them in a low microwave safe dish to zap for a minute, stir, and repeat this about 3 more times or until they start to dry a little. Don't microwave too long, it's fine if they're not fully toasted.

Source: I think this originally came from a newspaper recipe, but it's been changed over time to make it easier for me to do.

I'm dying to try this! We have a big batch of other cookies we have to finish (slowly) first. Thanks so much for sharing.

Please note! My recipe for these cookies uploaded right except for one thing... it should have read 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar, not 3/4 cup. Sorry! I have written ThriftyFun about a correction, but wanted to let everyone here know in case it takes a bit for them to find my email and you're ready to bake. :^)

Editor's Note: The main recipe has been changed above.

This is one cookie that will go into my cookie collection. I bake for my former co-workers each year at Christmas and always looking for something new to add to the collection. This will be a winner I can tell. Thanks for sharing.
