I just made these for the cookie trays. Although I'm not a coconut fan, the recipients of the trays are big fans of coconut. These were very easy to make. I used about 1/2 to 3/4 of a 14 ounce bag of coconut. They have a nice glossy appearance and I think that they were good (the chocolate sort of hides the coconut taste). :) Thank you for this easy and quick recipe!

I tried this recipe once before but made a few changes this time. The last time I made them I didn't like the way they baked flat like a cookie. This time I didn't cook the macaroons right away. Instead I put them in the fridge for a few hour to let them set. Once they where cold it was much easier to get them into the rounded shape I wanted. I baked them for about 8 min and they kept their shape perfectly. I also used semi sweet chocolate instead of unsweetened, and 100g of chopped pecans. They tasted great they where light, fluffy and moist.
