Pre-heat oven to 170°C/ 350°F. Distribute shredded coconut over baking sheet evenly and roast in oven for approx. 4 min., or until golden brown.
- 4 egg whites
- 200 g sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp salt
In a large bowl, beat egg whites, sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Add toasted coconut and combine. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge for approx. 1 hr.
- baking sheet
- parchment paper
Form coconut mix into 20 small balls and distribute over a parchment-lined baking sheet. Transfer to oven at 170°C/350°F for approx. 15 min. The macaroons should be lightly browned and still a bit soft. Take out of oven and set aside to cool.
Break up chocolate and melt in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Carefully remove macaroons from baking paper and partially dip in chocolate. Place on parchment paper to dry for approx. 1 hr., then enjoy!
