Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 mini size candy bars (I used Snickers and Milky Way), cut into thirds
  • 1/2 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add coconut, egg whites, almond extract and vanilla extract into a blender of food processor. Process or blend until well combined.
  2. Pack the coconut mixture into a 2 tablespoon sized scoop, then press the chocolate candy piece into the center, and cover with a bit more of the coconut mixture, pressing firmly.
  3. Release the scoop onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops and edges are golden brown.
  4. Allow to cool, and then scoop the melted chocolate into a Zip-loc bag. Cut a tiny part of one of the bottom corners of the bag, and drizzle chocolate in a criss cross pattern over the cookies.
