These could be the simplest no bake cookies to make in your kitchen.They are perfect to make when we are short of time, but still craving something sweet and homemade. I absolutely love coconut, but I know people have "certain" relationship with coconut. Either they love it or hate it, not my case.
I used a small cookie scoop to get a uniform size on my cookies and make them look more like a little ball .
Coconut and Chocolate Patties
Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart Website
3 cups sweetened shredded coconut
4 drops pure almond extract
7 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the coconut in a single layer
Place in the oven until the coconut is golden and toasted.This happens pretty fast, around 8 minutes or so, I would recommend keeping an eye on it and also stirring occasionally to color the coconut evenly.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
Melt the chocolate
In a medium bowl, combine toasted coconut, almond extract, and melted chocolate.
Gently stir until the chocolate and coconut is combined.
Using a cookie scoop drop a ball of the mixture off into a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture.
Place in the refrigerator until cookies are set.
Happy cookie making and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
