Chocolate Macaroons

Chocolate Macaroons

3 large egg whites

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

3 cups coconut

2 squares of melted chocolate OR 6 TBsp. cocoa powder mixed with 2 TBsp safflower oil

Preheat oven to 325˚. Beat egg whites until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar and vanilla, beating until peaks are very stiff. By hand, blend in the coconut.

For chocolate macaroons add 2 squares melted chocolate (or cocoa powder plus oil)  to the batter before baking. You can also divide the batter in half and add 1 square melted chocolate to one portion and leave the remaining un-chocolate!

Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture 2 inches apart onto wax paper-lined baking sheets. Bake approximately 19-20 minutes. Allow to cool completely and then carefully remove from wax paper.
