BUT THESE MACAROONS ARE DELICIOUS! If you favor mounds bars, and coconut in general these are meant for you. Easy easy to make and just so very easy. I can't say enough!
I found a recipe that I adapted by Googling for a Coconut Macaroon recipe and found the most appealing one at a Taste of Home, called First Place Coconut Macaroon Recipe.
Ingredients for Chocolate Chip coconut Macaroons:
7 ounce package flaked coconut
1/3 c. sugar
2 rounded tablespoons of flour
large pinch of kosher salt
2 large egg whites (My egg whites were extra large thus the rounded tablespoons of flour.)
1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 C. mini semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place parchment paper or foil on baking sheets and set aside.
In a medium bowl stir all together all of the ingredients until well blended. Don't bother with a mixer, just stir well. Drop by rounded spoonfuls and shape into mounds with your fingers moistened with a little water. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden. Cool. Yield about 1 1/2 dozen. ENJOY.
