Chocolate-Dipped Fortune Cookies
Serving Size / Yield
- 1/2 C. flour
- 1 Tbs. cornstarch
- 1/4 C. sugar
- 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
- 1 egg white
- 3 drops vanilla extract
- 1 Tbs. water
- 12 oz. bar dark chocolate, melted
Before cooking, type or handwrite 10 romantic fortunes on thick-bond paper, cut into strips 1/2" wide and 2" long.
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add liquid ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. Grease a non-stick cookie sheet with butter or non-stick vegetable spray. Drop one level tsp. of batter onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until cookies begin to brown lightly. While cookies bake, melt chocolate in double boiler pot.
Remove cookie sheet from oven and remove one cookie with a wide spatula. Quickly place a fortune in the center, fold in half and press against the rim of a bowl to form fortune cookie crescent shape. Continue to shape the remainder of cookies, returning them back to the oven for 2 minutes if they become brittle.
Cool and dip into melted chocolate, placing on waxed paper until the chocolate hardens. Wrap in plastic or waxed paper, or place in an airtight container. Can be made up to 24 hours in advance.
