Dark Chocolate Macaroons

Dark Chocolate Macaroons, adapted just slightly from Chindeep.com

3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped

3/4 c sweetened condensed milk

7 oz sweetened, flaked coconut

1 t pure vanilla extract

coarse sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In the top of a double boiler (or a pot on top of a pot of boiling water), combine chopped chocolate and condensed milk. Heat just until chocolate is melted and mixture thickens slightly (about 2 minutes.) Remove from heat. Add coconut and vanilla. Mix well.

Scoop out onto lightly sprayed cookie sheet by the heaping tablespoon, placing the macaroons about 1 inch apart. Put a little coarse sea salt on the top of each (not too much.) Bake 12 minutes, or until the macaroons are set. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
