MACAROON BARS DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE
ADAPTED FROM INA'S RECIPE....
14 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
chocolate of your choice for melting (melt chips in microwave in a wide bowl for easy dipping) This part is of course optional... but delish!!!
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F
Line an 8x8 pan with nonstick foil. In a bowl, mix the coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla.
Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in an electric mixer with the whisk attachment until medium-firm peaks. Fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.
Spread the batter into the pan evenly. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown on top. Cool and cut into squares. Dip the bottoms into any type of chocolate you like. Milk or dark! Mmmmmm!!!
