-------- ------------ ------------ --------- --------- --
2 egg whites -- at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 can (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 packages (14-ounce) shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup white chocolate morsels
1/2 cup crushed peppermints

Preheat oven to 300. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites and salt until foamy, about 2 minutes. Whisk in condensed milk and vanilla. Fold in coconut, chocolate morsels, and crushed peppermint.

Using a 1 1/2-inch spring-loaded, ice cream scoop, drop dough onto prepared baking sheets; bake for 20 minutes, or until coconut just begins to brown. Let cool on pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
