Make Some Mud Puddles for Halloween

I have some little buddies that eat a gluten free diet.  I wanted to make them some Halloween treats so I made these mud puddles.  You would be very happy to fall face down in one of these.
Toast 2 C. of walnuts and set them aside to cool.

Mix 2 C. of confectioners sugar with 1/3 C. cocoa powder and 1 C. of semi sweet chocolate chips. Chop the cooled walnuts and add them to the mix.

Add 2 egg whites and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract.

Mix until combined.

Using a small ice cream scoop, plop scoops of the dough on a parchment covered cookie sheet.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes. They will be shiny and begin to form cracks on the top.  Let them cool on the baking sheets.  I didn't try these because I don't like chocolate but my family loved them and said they are now fans of gluten free cookies.
