Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder Cocoa Rouge
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 cup flaked sweetened coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, almonds, sugar and salt. Add the egg whites and vanilla and beat on low speed until glossy. Stir in the coconut.
  • Using a cookie scoop (medium) or about a 2 tablespoon measure, scoop out rounds and arrange them on the baking sheet a few inches apart. You should get about 8.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the macaroons appear set.
  • Allow them to cool directly on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • They taste great frozen, so I recommend storing them in the freezer in a zipper bag.
