In a bowl, mix Cream Cheese with vanilla extract. Add coconut and mix well. Shape into 20 small balls and press lightly. Refrigerate.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a double boiler and let cool.

Dip half of each macaroon in the cooled melted chocolate, drain and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to harden chocolate.

Arrange on a serving dish. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. To prevent chocolate from melting, keep away from heat
