1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch of kosher salt
2 large egg whites
2 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup green M&M's
Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the vanilla, salt and egg whites in a large bowl. Fold in the coconut and candies. Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough and firmly squeeze then into balls. Each ball should have about 3 candies in it. More might cause the ball to fall apart while baking. (Pat recommends using a teaspoon and use one M&M) Place balls 1 inch apart on the parchment paper on baking sheet. Bake until very lightly toasted. about 15 minutes.
Let cool on the parchment on a wire rack for about 15 minutes.
