True Cinnamon & Cayenne Dark Chocolate Dipped Macaroons
These almond-flavored macaroons are sweetened with True Cinnamon and then dipped in dark chocolate, lightly spiced with Cayenne Powder. The Cayenne intensifies the dark chocolate flavor and gives these macaroons a nice little kick. The sweet kick lingers, even after your final bite. It is sweet- spicy yumminess at its best!

1 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tblspns flour
2 (large eggs) egg whites
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp True Cinnamon

8 ounces dark chocolate chips, melted
1/8 tsp (scant) Cayenne Powder

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the first seven ingredients. Using a teaspoon, scoop rounded mounds of the mixed batter onto the parchment paper of the cookie sheet. Place the macaroons into the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes, rotating the cookie sheet halfway through the cooking time.
