12 Days of Christmas - Chocolate Peppermint Macaroons

“Nine Ladies Dancing” – Chocolate Peppermint Macaroons

These will make the ladies dance!

· 5 ½ cups sweetened flaked coconut
· 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
· ½ teaspoon salt
· 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
· 1 teaspoon vanilla
· 8 ounces chocolate almond bark
· 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
· 1 cup peppermint crunch

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine coconut and flour; then add salt, milk and vanilla.
3. Drop by tablespoons full on to the cooking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and toasted.
4. Remove from oven to cool slightly and prepare the chocolate almond bark. Microwave the bark, stirring about every 45 seconds until its smooth. Stir in the peppermint extract. Immediately drizzle the chocolate over each macaroon and sprinkle with peppermint crunch. The chocolate will set quickly so work fast!
5. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 18 macaroons.
