Chocolate Chip Macaroons

These chocolate chip macaroons would be great to bring to a tea party, like the one in the picture above. We were actually having a tea party within a bbq but I’m pretty sure these cookies would be welcome at either one.

They’re very light and only require a few ingredients. Most recipes call for unsweetened coconut but I couldn’t find any at my grocery store so I just reduced the amount of sugar in the recipe. I cooked them until the chocolate had just started to melt and the cripsy outside and gooey inside mixed perfectly.

3 C. Shredded Coconut, Sweetened
1/4 C. Sugar
3 Large egg whites
1/4 C. Bittersweet (70%) Chocolate Chips
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl using a spatula.
3. Using a spoon, form small round lumps about 1 inch apart on a parchment lined sheet tray.
4. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
