Macaroon Bears

The bambinos asked if we could make biscuits today. So we made coconut macaroons with chocolate button bear faces. Obviously. 

Ingredients:

2 large egg whites

200g desiccated coconut

150g caster sugar

25g dark choc, melted

chocolate buttons (normal and giant sized)

white and dark chocolate chips

small, pink chocolate decorations - or pink icing

black writing icing

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees (180 degrees fan).
  2. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks.
  3. Combine the desiccated coconut and sugar and fold into the egg whites.
  4. Roll into balls and place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Flatten slightly with your fingers - they will also spread out a bit as they cook.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
  6. Once cool, decorate using the black writing icing, and using the melted chocolate to stick on the chocolate decorations,
