Recipe Ingredients for Bittersweet Chocolate-Dipped Orange & Coconut Macaroons

2 egg whites
200 g coconut meat, dried, sweetened, shredded
2/3 cup sugar
3 tbsp flour
1 tbsp orange zest
150 g bittersweet chocolate
1 tsp orange zest

Recipe Directions for Bittersweet Chocolate-Dipped Orange & Coconut Macaroons

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C and line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the coconut, egg white, sugar, flour, salt and orange extract/orange zest till evenly combined (you don?t want any dry coconut or random blobs of flour!), then use a teaspoon to form heaped teaspoons of the mixture into a shape like a quenelle (smooth, oval shaped domes). Carefully slide each macaroon off the teaspoon onto the lined baking trays. You may want to occasionally wash your hands during this process as the stickier your hands become, the harder it is to form shapes.

  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or till they are lightly coloured and edges become golden brown. Carefully remove them from the tray and allow them to cool on a wire rack.

  4. Meanwhile, place the chocolate into a ceramic bowl and place this over a smaller bowl half filled with boiling water (the bowl with the chocolate should sit on top, not inside the smaller bowl). Allow the chocolate to sit for 5 minutes, then carefully stir to aid the melting process, then stir in the orange extract/zest.

  5. Once the chocolate is smooth, dip half of a coconut macaroon into the chocolate, then carefully tap against the bowl to allow any excess to drip off. Place onto a sheet of non-stick baking paper, then repeat with the rest until they?re all dipped, then leave for the chocolate to harden before serving. These can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 5 days, but do not store in the fridge as bringing them back to room temperature will make the chocolate ?sweat?!
