Last week for the first time ever, I tried making macaroons. What I thought was going to be a horrible mess, actually turned out to be amazing! I got a ton of good reviews and I definitely will be making more of them in the future!

For these macaroons you will need:

-3 1/2 egg whites 
-1/2 cup of granulated sugar
-1 tsp of vanilla extract 
-2 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
-1/2 cup of chocolate chips 

Mix together the egg whites, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Beat this for approximately 2 minutes until it appears almost bubbly. Add in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips slowly making sure every part is moistened. Then take small scoops and roll them onto a greased baking sheet.

*Note: if it is very sticky and moist while rolling the balls this is okay! It can get a bit messy though. Rolling isn't entirely necessary, I just wanted to avoid them from falling apart! Finally, bake at 325F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet.

That's it!! Simple eh? Mine have been in the fridge now for 5 days and still taste great! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and make some tasty treats! These could be a perfect little dessert to add for thanksgiving :)
