Chocolate-dipped Coconut macaroons

In Northern California, its december but it is autumn. The leaves are falling.
I have experimented with several delicious recipes in the past. I am a huge chocolate and nuts fan so I added some dark chocolate and almond meal to this easy, quick recipe from epicurious.

Here are my modifications to the recipe:

2 large egg white
1 packet of splenda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (omitted but would be good)
3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 almond meal

Mix together.
Bake in a preheated oven 300°F for 15-20 min.
Cool on a rack for 10 min.
Dip in dark chocolate (4 oz melted in a bowl in the microwave med. setting 1-2 min)
Resist eating and allow to cool on a baking sheet.
