by Van Glass | November 03, 2014

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites 

  • 1/4 tsp salt 
6 ounces
  • (1 cup) Dark Chocolate Buttons, melted, cooled 

  • 1/2 cup finely ground almonds 

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 

  • 1 cup sugar

Directions

Beat egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry. Beat in sugar, a little at a time; beat until mixture is thick and glossy. Mixture should stand in peaks. Fold in almonds, vanilla, and melted chocolate. For a more intense almond flavor add 1/2 tsp almond extract.

Drop chocolate macaroons by tablespoonfuls onto buttered cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes about 36 cookies.
