Ingredients

Macaroons

  • 14 ounce bag sweetened coconut flakes
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted then cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 large eggs whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Chocolate

  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

Macaroons

  • In a medium sized bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, butter, vanilla extract, and almond extract until well combined.
  • Stir in coconut flakes until well incorporated.
  • Use electric mixer with whisk attachment to beat egg whites and salt on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold egg whites into coconut mixture until just combined. Refrigerate mixture for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Use two spoons or a cookie dough scoop to form coconut mixture into ~1 tablespoon sized mounds. Place mounds at least 1 inch apart on prepared baking mat.
  • Bake for 9 minutes. Turn baking sheet around in oven and bake for an addition 8-10 minutes, or until tops of mounds are golden brown.
  • Let cool completely before finishing with chocolate.

Chocolate

  • Set out wax paper or parchment paper on a working surface.
  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave on 50% power, in 30 second increments. Stir well after each interval and repeat until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Dip bottoms of cooled macaroons into melted chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate and place dipped macaroon on parchment paper. You may also drizzle melted chocolate over the tops of the macaroons. Let sit at room temperature until chocolate has firmed, about 1 hour.
