Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons


Chocolate-dipped Coconut Macaroons are one of my favorite treats to buy in a bakery. So when I saw them featured on Lick The Spoon, my assignment for this month's Secret Recipe Club, I knew I would have to try my hand and making them. And since Easter was coming up, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for a new treat! These are so easy to put together and so delicious! You don't need a holiday for an excuse, make these yummy treats today.

Mix coconut, sugar,


flour


and salt in a large bowl. Beat egg whites until soft peaks, the add the vanilla.


Fold gently into the coconut mixture.


Form 20-24 roughly formed but firmly packed balls of mixture and place onto parchment-paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes until the edges begin to turn golden.


Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat on 50% power for 45 seconds. Stir, and heat again in 30 second intervals until nearly melted. Stir until smooth.


When cookies have cooled, dip the bottoms in melted chocolate


and place on parchment paper (chocolate side up) until cooled.


Enjoy!
