Homemade Coconut Macaroons

This coconut macaroons comes together in less than 10 minutes. You only have to beat egg whites until stiff peaks and add the rest of the ingredients. They have an amazing coconut flavor, topped with some chocolate souse and desiccated coconut.

To make the ball shape, you can use tablespoon or an ice cream spoon. Personally, I prefer to use ice cream spoon to scoop the mixture.
