Haystacks

Similar to macaroons, these are crunchy on the outside while soft and chewy on the inside.

1 large egg white
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
1 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup crushed walnuts
1 square (1 ounce) bittersweet chocolate, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl whisk together egg white and sugar until well combined. Whisk in vanilla and salt. Stir in coconut and crushed walnuts until combined.
3. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake 13-15 minutes until golden brown around the edges. Let cool on pan 5 minutes before transfering to wire rack to cool completely.
4. Drizzle cooled haystacks with melted chocolate and let set. Serve & enjoy!
