Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons
- Heaping 3/4 cup sugar
- Scant 1/2 cup egg whites (from about 3 eggs)
- 3/4 pound (scant 2 1/2 cups) sweetened desiccated or flaked coconut (not shredded)
- 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate together in a bowl. (The recipe can be made up to this point and kept refrigerated up to 3 days in advance.)
Scoop the mixture with a small 1 to 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop onto parchment lined cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches between the cookies. Bake until light golden, about 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely on the pans.
Remove from the pan and dip the bottoms in melted chocolate, then place back on the sheet tray to set up.
