Recipe Details
Ingredients
  • 3 large egg white(s)
  • 2/3 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cup(s) shredded coconut meat, unsweetened
  • 3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small bits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line one or two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites with sugar. Add vanilla and coconut; stir to combine.
  3. Scoop up a level tablespoon of batter and form into a ball with your hands; repeat with remaining batter. Place each ball about 1-inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake until tops just start to turn light tan, about 15 to 18 minutes. Remove cookies to a cooling rack for about 30 minutes.
  5. Place chocolate in a double boiler or heavy pot; melt over low heat, stirring occasionally (do not allow to burn). Keep chocolate warm and pliable as you dip tops of cookies into chocolate. Place dipped cookies on a metal tray evenly spread apart so they’re not touching; freeze until chocolate sets, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. Serving size: 1 cookie
