Chocolate-Dipped Macaroons 12-14
Free of:
All top allergens, except eggs


  • 4 egg whites*
  • 300 g (3 cups) icing sugar
  • 250 g (2 3/4 cups) shredded coconut [look for allergen-free brands]
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup (250 mL) dark chocolate**, melted

**See note on “Safe Chocolate”


  1. Pre-heat oven to 250°F. In a metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add sugar and lemon juice.
  2. Place bowl over a medium saucepan of simmering water. Continue to beat mixture until stiff. Remove from heat and fold in coconut.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop mixture by the tablespoon onto the sheet, about one inch apart. Bake 15-18 minutes until set, but not browning.
  4. Remove and cool. Dip tops into melted chocolate and cool. Serve.
