Macaroons are the perfect cookie to make with friends since they are not labor intensive, the jobs can easily be distributed, and they can be made in large quantities in a short amount of time. Everyone leaves with a large batch. If baking with two friends, make three batches of the coconut mixture.

8 ounces sweetened angel flake coconut
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 stiffly beaten egg white
1/8 tsp. of salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix coconut, vanilla extract, salt and condensed milk together in a mixing bowl. Beat egg white until stiff. Fold the egg white into the coconut. Form the coconut mixture into balls and place one inch a part onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven until golden for approximately 12- 14 minutes. Melt the chocolate chips in the oven for 1 minute until melted. Cool cookies on a cooling rack and drizzle melted chocolate over the macaroons using a small spoon.
