“I've been saving this since 1997 from McCall's magazine. Here are the last three recipes. Go to Chicken Soup With Matzo Balls to read more. Here is the last Macaroon recipe. Here is a few other interesting things they had in the artical. A taste of history: The seder plate...Every food represents portions of the Passover story. Zeroah, a roasted shank bone, symbolizes the lamb sacrificed on Passover eve. A roasted egg, betzah, signifies eternal life. Haroset, a mix of apples and wine, is inspired by the mortar used to build Pharaoh's cities. Horseradish is a reminder of life in slavery. Karpas, a vegetable dipped in salt water, commemorates spring. Calling all kids...The afikomen, or ceremonial matzo, is hidden at the beginning of dinner by the seder leader. A prize (usually candy or money) goes to the child who finds it. The matzo is then shared by everyone at the table.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; lightly coat with cooking spray (if using nonstick pans or liners, do not use cooking spray).
  2. In large bowl, toss coconut with sugar until evenly coated. In a pan melt the chocolate; let cool slightly. In small bowl, combine egg whites, chocolate, vanilla and salt until blended. Add to coconut mixture; blend well with spatula.
  3. On prepared baking sheet, form heaping table-spoonfuls of mixture into 15 mounds, 2 inches apart. Bake 15 minutes or until bottoms are golden and tops start to brown (centers will be slightly soft). Let cool 10 minutes on baking sheet; remove with spatula to wire rack; let cool completely on rack. Best served the same day, but can be stored overnight in airtight container.
