Homemade Fortune Cookies Dipped in Chocolate
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2 to 3 dozen
 
Ingredients
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablepoons whole milk
  • 5 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoons almond or orange flavoring
  • parchment paper
Instructions
  1. Write or print fortunes and cut them out. Fold the fortunes into narrow strips that are ¼ inch thick by about 2 inches long.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Beat egg whites and sugar together on medium speed until just combined, about 1 minute. Sift flour and salt into egg white mixture and beat until combined, about 30 seconds. Add butter, milk and flavorings until combined.
  4. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. If possible, do not use a dark, nonstick sheet pan, (the cookies will get too brown). Lightly spray parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray, optional (I do not spray mine).
  5. Spoon about 1 to 2 teaspoons of batter onto parchment paper or silpat for each cookie and spread into an even circle with the back of a spoon or small spatula. Start with only 3 cookies at a time. Bake for 7 minutes. Ovens vary in temperatures so, check at 6 minutes and bake until fortune cookie is set and slightly golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and, working very quickly, flip cookies over, place a fortune across center of cookie and gently fold edges together to resemble a taco. Then, quickly fold "taco" over hot edge of pan to keep its shape while folding other cookies.
  7. Set folded cookies in a muffin tin to keep their shape while cooling.
  8. When all cookies are baked, place ½ cup of chocolate chips in a small bowl and melt in microwave by heating on 50 percent power for 15 seconds. Stir chocolate and repeat 4 to 5 more times or until chocolate is completely melted but not scorched. Stir remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips into hot, melted chocolate and stir until completely melted.
  9. Dip one side of each cookie into chocolate and then dip into colored sprinkles. Set aside for chocolate to set.
