My coconut macaroons are by far the favorite among friends and family during the holidays. The best part is that they are easy to make as there are really only 5 ingredients. They are also gluten free, making them the idea sweet treat for all.
Coconut Macaroon Recipe
1 14 oz Bag of Sweetened Flakes of Coconut
2/3’s of a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Tablespoon Pure Almond Extract
1.5 Tablespoons of Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 Bag of 10oz Package of Mini Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat oven to 350.
In a mixer add the entire package of coconut along with the Condensed Milk Almond Extract and Vanilla Extract and mix. Make sure not to over-mix... Fold in 1/2 bag of mini chocolate chips.
Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spoon out decent size cookies. Bake 9-12 minutes until the tops begin to show a light golden brown color.
This is a very simple recipe, but everyone LOVES these Coconut Macaroons and they are always a big hit for the holidays.
