Great And Super Easy Coconut Mounds With Chocolate


These are so yummy and they are so easy to make. I personally do not like coconuts, so I made these for hubby and children. When I tasted them I fell in love! So good. Give them a try!

INGREDIENTS:

-2 egg whites, at room temperature
-1 pinch salt
-1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
-3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
-3-1/2 cups (875 mL) sweetened shredded coconut
-4 oz (113 g) bittersweet chocolate, melted

DIRECTIONS:

1- Line baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

2- In bowl, beat egg whites with salt until foamy; beat in vanilla. Beat in sugar, 2 tbsp (25 mL) at a time, until stiff peaks.

3- Fold (mix do not beat) in coconut.

4- Place 1 tbsp (15 mL), 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, onto prepared pan. Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until edges are golden, 18 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes; transfer to racks and let cool.

5- Dip bottoms of cookies into the melted chocolate. When melting do in small increments if you are doing it in the microwave so the chocolate does not burn. Refrigerate until hardened, about 10 minutes. (I put the coconut mounds again on parchment paper and place in fridge. You can dip the bottom into chocolate or take a fork and make nice little lines on the top.

You do not have to put the chocolate at all. That is how my family likes them:)

Cookies can be stored for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
