  • 2 large eggs , room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 7/8 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 Lb semisweet chocolate , coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp butter or shortening
Preheat oven to 350 ℉ and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 

In a large bowl whisk the eggs until well beaten. Whisk in the sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Finally, stir in the dried coconut, making sure that all the coconut is thoroughly moistened.

Place small mounds (about 1 Tbsp) of the batter on the parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing several inches apart. If desired, place a small chunk of chocolate in the center of each cookie. Bake for about 14 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Then dip or spread the bottoms of each macaroon with the melted chocolate. Place the macaroons, chocolate side down, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate the cookies for about 15-30 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens. Can be covered and stored for several days at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Chocolate Coating: Place the chopped chocolate and butter/shortening in a microwaveable bowl. Melt in the microwave (or over a saucepan of simmering water). Let cool to room temperature before using.
