Mint Chocolate Macaroons Recipe

1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) mint-chocolate morsels
3 large egg whites
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/4 cups (7 ounce package) flaked or shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with foil or parchment paper.

Beat egg whites in large mixer bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in melted chocolate and coconut. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
