Give me a tall cold glass of milk and a batch of these babies and I am good to go. Yes, you heard me right ‘a batch’. These little pops are hard not to gobble up. This recipe is enough for a small family so you may want to double up if you have a large one. These perfect petite bites will leave you satisfied when you have that late night sugar craving.
1-1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
6 squares sweetened baking chocolate
1. Pre-heat oven to 325 F. In a large mixing bowl, add coconut, sugar, flour, egg whites and vanilla. With hands, mix well. Make small balls out of 1 teaspoon size amount. Place balls onto cookie sheet or baking mat. Bake 20 minutes, to get brown top turn broil on high and allow to cook until golden tops, about 1 minute.
2. Place baking chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, cook for 2 minutes or until chocolate has melted. Carefully place bottom of macaroon into bowl allowing chocolate to cover half down. Place on parchment paper and allow to set in fridge for 1 hour.
