Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 12 mins
Servings 20


  • 5 oz 150 grams good quality dark chocolate (60-70%)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 egg whites


  • Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  • Melt chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl on 50% power for 2 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes, then stir to finish melting. Return to microwave at 50% power for 30 seconds if needed.  (Alternatively, melt chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.)
  • Stir in remaining ingredients, using your hands if needed.  Mound onto parchment-lined cookie sheets by heaping tablespoonfuls.  Bake for 12-15 minutes, until just set (a few cracks, slightly matte in appearance but still very soft).  Let cool completely on pan before trying to move - they will firm up as they sit.
