I took last year's plain coconut macaroons and drizzled them with a little chocolate to satisfy my craving. I reduced the sugar a little to compensate for the chocolate and drizzled some chocolate over them once they were done.
3/4cup5 large egg whites
1/2cup+ 2 tbsp raw sugar
10ozsweetened coconut flakes(Baker's)
1ozmelted semi-sweet chocolate for drizzling(I melted 2 oz, but only used 1 oz)
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.
