CHOCOLATE COCONUT MACAROONS

Yield: About 3 dozen cookies

INGREDIENTS

8 ounces (227 grams) dark chocolate, chopped small
14 ounces (400 grams) sweetened, flaked coconut
1/2 cup (99 grams) granulated sugar
3 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 325°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Heat approximately half of chocolate chunks in a small saucepan until just melted, then, off the heat, stir in the remaining chunks until they’re smooth. The residual heat should be enough to melt them and leave the mixture lukewarm; if it’s not, heat the mixture again until just melted, but not very hot.

In a food processor, blend the coconut for 30 seconds. Add sugar, egg whites, salt and vanilla and blend until combined, then add the melted chocolate and blend until smooth. Scoop batter into 1 1/2-inch mounds.

Bake cookies for 15 minutes, until the macaroons are shiny and just set.

Store covered for 1 week, or in refrigerator up to 3 weeks
