So I wanted to make something sweet, simple and fast to make. I had this urge to bake something one night…..late night about 9pm. I was watching Paula Deen on tv she so inspired me bake. I was having the urge to bake something, anything but not take me a long time to make something. So I looked in my pantry and found a unopened bag of coconut. First thing I said to myself, ohhhhh Coconut!!! How about some Coconut Macaroons. Oh yea, sounds super fun to me!!
So this recipe is very easy to make, all the supplies need to make these delicious Coconut Macaroons are probably in your pantry! The only main ingredient you need is Coconut of course!

3 Cups Sweetened dried Coconut (shredded or flake)
1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
2 large eggs (Room Temperature)
To make the Coconut Macaroons, first you need to line your cookie sheet pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk the 3 eggs really well. Add salt and pure vanilla extract and mix together. Next add in the sugar and mix well. And last add your Coconut, mix with a spatula until the coconut and rest of ingredients are moistened.
You can use a small ice cream scooper or 1 tablespoon of batter onto the baking sheet with parchment paper, spacing several inches apart. Make about 24 Coconut Macaroons.
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate ( I used Toll House Chocolate Chips)
1/2 teaspoon butter or shortening
Place the chopped chocolate and shortening in a microwaveable bowl. Melt in the microwave (or over a saucepan of simmering water).
