Chocolate Peanut Macaroons

I came up with these because I didn't have all the right ingredients for the original recipe!  They turned out pretty good.  Makes 2 dozen.

2 2/3 cups shredded coconut
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
4 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped peanuts
2 cups of melting chocolate

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, stir well.  Add egg whites and vanilla extract, stir well.  Stir in peanuts.  Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.  Bake at 325 for 22 min. or until macaroons are golden.  Remove immediately to wire racks to cool completely.  While macaroons are cooling melt chocolate.  Dip bottoms of macaroons into chocolate.  Place on wax paper to cool and set.
