I posted this recipe originally on the foodies with allergies board (since it's gluten free). I thought I posted it here, but can't find it. So here it is along with my white chocolate version beneath it:

Quick Chocolate Macaroons

makes approximately 2 dozen

1 square unsweetened chocolate

1 1/3 c. coconut
1/3 c. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt chocolate in large bowl in microwave on high 1-2 minutes, stirring after each minute.

Stir until chocolate is completely melted.

Stir remaining ingredients into melted chocolate.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto sprayed cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until set.

Remove immediately from sheet and let cool on wire rack.

Personal observations: I found the unsweetened chocolate a bit bitter. I redid the recipe with milk chocolate, but it was on the weak side chocolate-wise. So next time I'd use semi-sweet. But I had the ultimate success with a white chocolate version which was so incredibly good I could barely stop myself from eating all the ones ear-marked to give away. So I'm posting it here:

White Chocolate Macaroons

makes approximately 2 dozen

1/3 c. white chocolate chips

1 1/3 c coconut
1/3 c. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt white chocolate in large bowl in microwave on high in 15-20 second intervals, stirring after each interval.

Stir remaining ingredients into melted chocolate.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto sprayed cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until set.

Remove immediately from sheet and let cool on wire rack.

For Christmas, I placed half a maraschino cherry in the center before baking. I plan to make these again for Easter--might still use the cherry or maybe cut a purple or yellow jelly bean in half.
