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