Cook's Notes

Chocolate chunks are available in the baking section of most supermarkets, but of course chips or broken chocolate bars can be used as well.

    This is the most wonderful recipe and I make these delicious macaroons every Passover. Make sure you DO not use Nestles chocolate chips. Try a better quality like Ghirardelli ( which are Trader Joes packaged) I get the unsweetened coconut at Sprouts. Thanks Martha!

    Look for unsweetened coconut in the freezer section of your grocery store. In my local stores, it is with the international freezer section (one brand that makes it is Goya). You won't usually find in in the baking section.

    I use sweetened coconut, and just add less sugar. I believe the last time I made these, I added half as much. I never beat the egg whites, just stir them in.

    Do the egg whites not need to be beaten? I got unsweetened coconut in a health food store.
