Coconut Macaroons Recipe
- 3.5 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- ¾ cup condensed milk
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Cut parchment paper into 3-inch squares and lay into each section of a muffin tin – set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together coconut and condensed milk. You’ll want to make sure the coconut is completely covered but not too sticky.
- With the help of a spoon, drop mini mounds of your coconut mixture into each section of your muffin tin. Your mounds should be pretty compact so that they don’t fall apart in the baking process.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned at edges. Press and compact the macaroons if necessary and let cool to room temperature on a wire rack.
- Using the double boiler method or 10 second microwave and stir intervals, melt your chocolate chips and drizzle on top of each macaroon. Let the chocolate set until firm before serving.
