The popular flavours of chocolate and coconut combine in these chewy treats.
- Portion size 20 servings
- 2/3 cups sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups flaked coconut
- 2 egg whites
- 8 oz semisweet chocolate melted (optional)
In large bowl, blend together condensed milk, cocoa and vanilla; stir in flaked coconut until well mixed. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into coconut mixture.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheets; shape into logs about 3 inches (8 cm) long. Bake in 300°F (150°C) oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown and firm. Let cool on wire racks. Dip one end of each log into chocolate (if using). Let stand on waxed paper until chocolate is set.
