Double Chocolate Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Photograph: Yvonne Ruperti

These chewy coconut flourless cookies are all about the moist and fudgy center.

Note: If batter feels warm when it's time to fold in the chopped chocolate, let it cool in the fridge slightly before adding, so that the chopped chocolate does not melt.
