Double-Chocolate Chews

I made a double batch of these over Christmas to serve with peppermint ice cream. They are so delicious, they almost make me want to love chocolate......almost! This would make a great ice cream sandwich cookie too!

1-3/4 cups flour
2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup packed brown sugar
2-1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 tablespoon water
2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 large egg whites
finely crushed candy canes, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients; set aside. In a small saucepan, combine 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips and oil; cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring constantly. Pour melted chocolate mixture into a large bowl and cool for about 5 minutes. Stir brown sugar, corn syrup, water, vanilla, and egg whites into melted chocolate mixture. Stir in flour mixture and remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Drop by a small cookie scoop (or level tablespoons) onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray; space 2 inches apart. Roll in crushed peppermint candy canes, if desired. Bake for about 8 minutes. Cool cookies on pans about 2 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. Yield: 4 dozen adapted from Cooking Light
