    Default Easy chocolate macaroons

    CHOCOLATE MACAROONS

    INGREDIENTS:

    * 1 cup sugar -- I prefer white for a lighter macaroon
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
    * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    * 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
    * 1 1/2 sqares baking chocolate, unsweetened (or bittersweet, to taste), melted

    PREPARATION:
    Combine sugar and salt. Gently fold sugar and salt gradually into the beaten egg whites. Add vanilla. Fold in coconut and chocolate. Drop from teaspoon on greased baking sheet. Bake at 275° for 15-20 minutes.

    NB: I usually check the macaroons after 10-12 minutes. I like mine CHEWY, and if you cook them too long, they get hard. The trick is to make sure they are set, a little brown around the edges, but still chewy in the middle. I usually do better on the second batch than the first. They're worth a little hassle, however.

    Makes 2 dozen 1 1/2-inch macaroons.

    I think I'll be trying this recipe tonight. I love macaroons.

    I have a recipe similiar to yours, PB. These cookies taste great. I made them for a party, and they were gone instantly.

    They are always an instant hit. I have trouble getting them into containers -- I try to make them when hubby is not around.

    I'm going to make these as a valentine gift .. sweet, I know.

    My question is, if I leave out the chocolate is the recipe the standard coconut macaroon recipe or would I need to modify? I'd like to make some of these chocolate ones and some 'traditional' coconut ones.

    I'm not sure, I've only ever made them with chocolate. You might have to add more coconut. That would be my best guess.
