Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I'm finishing up the Christmas cookie countdown with my favorite: Coconut Macaroons. Your teeth will sink into these. And I finished them up by dunking them into melted chocolate, just to make them a little extra special.

Enjoy and I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a small bowl, combine the coconut, sugar, flour and salt. Stir in egg whites and vanilla; mix well.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate in microwave in a microwave-safe bowl for one minute. Stir well and continue to cook in 30 second intervals until completely melted. When macaroons are cooled, carefully dip the bottom half into the chocolate. Dry on a piece of parchment paper. Store in an airtight container.
