Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Derek has on multiple occasions attempted to lose weight via weight watchers online.  It always works while he follows it which tends to be a few weeks at a time at the most.  My favorite thing about Derek on weight watchers is my access to their online recipe base.  This is one recipe I found there one night when Derek was dying for dessert but didn’t have a lot of points left over for the day.  If they are made real small, (like teaspoon sized dough balls on the sheet) they are supposedly only one point each. I generally just make them bigger unless Derek is actually on again with his weight watchers counting.  They call for only egg whites which I suppose is a health conscience effort, and as a result they have this airy crisp on the outside and chewy center which makes these kind of addicting.
