Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate

Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate from #recipe

It doesn’t get much easier than this. All it takes is five ingredients to make the softest, chewiest coconut macaroons that are slightly crisped on the edges. A final drizzle of chocolate completes this bite-sized sweet. 

Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate

Yield: 3 to 4 dozen

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 10 min


6 cups sweetened shredded coconut flakes
1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, stir together the coconut flakes, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until well combined.

Use a small spoon to scoop out roughly 3 Tablespoons of the mixture to form small mounds, spaced about 2 inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

Remove the macaroons from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Melt the chocolate chips and vegetable oil in the microwave or a double-boiler, stirring until smooth. Drizzle the cooled macaroons with the chocolate and serve.
