Mocha macaroons

Yield: 42 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 Egg whites
1 teaspoon Instant coffee granules; crushed
¼ teaspoon Cream of tartar
⅛ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups Coconut flakes

Preheat oven to 300 degrees; lightly grease cookie sheets. Beat the egg whites, coffee, cream of tartar and salt in a medium bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, on high speed; continue beating until stiff. Do not underbeat. Stir the cocoa until smooth and powdery. Fold in the cocoa and coconut. Drop the mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls 1 inch apart on the cookie sheets. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from the cookie sheets. Cool on wire racks. Sprinkle with additional cocoa or drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
