Coconut Macaroons

I had no idea I would love these as much as I did, and I almost ate the whole batch myself! I had leftover coconut from last week's masterpiece and this recipe was on the back of the bag. I added the chocolate myself (big surprise, right?) and I was in love with these!

The batter ready for the cookie sheet.

Ready for the oven.

Just out of the oven, perfectly light and crisp.

Oh the drizzle of chocolate is music to my ears!

Some of them had their bottoms dipped with a dollop on top while others got thick drizzle action.

I loved the texture of these. The cookies were crisp and meringue like and the inside with the coconut had a chewiness to it. Then of course the chocolate added that little something that I love so much!

Coconut Macaroons

2 egg whites
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 dash salt
2/3 C sugar
1 1/2 C coconut

Beat egg whites, salt, and vanilla until soft peaks form. Slowly add sugar and beat until it is stiff and glossy. Fold in coconut. Drop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, or until set and light brown.

Those look too dangerous to make unless I have plenty of people to help eat them!
