Coconut Macaroons

It’s this coconut macaroons recipe that inspired me to make homemade sweetened condensed milk – though you can make these with the canned variety, I promise it’s worth the extra effort to make your own. I started with this recipe from Taste of Home, but used unsweetened coconut and added a chocolate drizzle and dip.

I love to have back pocket recipes for treats like this, where I have all of the ingredients on hand and can put them together easily. This recipe is also fun to make with kids who will enjoy stirring all of the ingredients together and scooping them out. And once the chocolate has cooled slightly, they’ll love dipping the macaroon bottoms!

    hey Marissa, what a lovely idea. For the Easter, these will have the nephews lick their fingers for sure.

    Too many bloggers recommend cupcakes, your idea sounds like a more interesting alternative 🙂

    Keep up the great work!

    Wow, you weren’t lying when you said these were easy! I love a good coconut macaroon, but I don’t think I’ve ever attempted making them at home. I definitely need to try these…and soon! Happy (early) Easter, my friend!
