2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces, melted and cooled
1 7-ounce package flaked coconut (2-2/3 cups)
1. Line a cookie sheet with foil; set aside. In a large bowl beat egg whites, vanilla, and salt with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating about 3 minutes on high speed or until stiff peaks form. Fold in melted chocolate; fold in coconut.
2. Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake in a 325 degree F (160 C) oven for 13 minutes. Cool cookies completely on cookie sheet. Carefully peel cookies off foil. Repeat with remaining cookie dough, using a clean piece of foil for each batch. (Dough will stiffen upon standing.)
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
