Line a cookie sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper; set aside.
In a small bowl stir together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and espresso powder; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl beat egg whites and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually add the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gradually fold in the cocoa mixture. Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
Pipe twenty-four 2-inch stars onto the prepared cookie sheet. (Or drop mixture by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheet.)
Bake in a 250 degree oven for 1 hour. Cool on cookie sheet on wire rack. Remove from parchment paper.
