Cake Boss' Coconut Chocolate Drops (serves 12)
- 4 oz. semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped or chocolate chips
- 4 large egg white
- 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3 cups sweetened shredded coconut
1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
2. In a microwave or in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Let cool slightly.
3. Put the egg whites, sugar, salt, vanilla and coconut in a large bowl, and stir them together with a wooden spoon. Stir in the melted chocolate until well combined.
4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Dollop the coconut-chocolate mixture onto the sheet in 2-inch balls about 2 inches apart. Bake until set, 16 to 18 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. The drops may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 to 3 days.
