COCONUT CHOCOLATE DRIZZLED MACAROONS!!

Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Macaroons

If I’m craving something sweet, macaroons are a good option because they are made with just egg whites and sugar – no flour or butter. Of course, you shouldn’t eat the whole batch, because too much sugar is not a good thing.

I’ve been using only raw sugar these days, so the color may not be as white, but they worked out just fine. These are gluten-free and Passover-friendly, hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup (5 large) egg whites

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp raw sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 10 oz sweetened coconut flakes (Baker’s)
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 oz melted semi-sweet chocolate for drizzling (I melted 2 oz, but only used 1 oz)

Directions:

In a heavy saucepan combine egg whites, sugar, salt and coconut flakes and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until all the ingredients combine together, about 12-15 minutes.

The mixture should be sticky and moist, not dry. Remove from heat and stir in the almond and vanilla extracts. Set aside on a dish and let it cool in the refrigerator about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 300°. Using a tablespoon, scoop tightly packed tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet covered with a silpat or parchment paper.

Bake 27-30 minutes or until golden.

Let them cool then melt the chocolate in the microwave and drizzle on top of the cookies using a spatula or a spoon.

Makes 38 cookies.
