Chocolate Drizzled Macaroons

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup of Hain® Organic turbinado sugar
  • 1/8 tsp Hain® Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • 3 large eggs
  • 24 oz sweetened flaked coconut
  • 6 oz SunSpire™ Organic Fair Trade 65% Cacao Semi-Sweet Baking Bar, broken into small pieces

DIRECTIONS

Coconut and SunSpire™ chocolate make the perfect pair in these delicious cookies that boast a dense, chewy texture and a sweet, nutty flavor that’s hard to resist!

Preheat oven to 325 ˚F, and line three large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl or an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy.  Add the orange zest, and then incorporate the eggs one at a time.  Turn off mixer, and fold in the coconut.

Drop generous tablespoons of batter onto the prepared cookie sheets, spacing them at least 1½ inches apart.

Bake macaroons one sheet at a time for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely on the sheets.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in microwave and drizzle over cooled cookies.  Let chocolate set for about 20 minutes.

Yield: 45 macaroons.
