Easy Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate

Easy Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate

I recently stumbled upon a recipe for coconut macaroons that I must share. I love coconuts and chocolate so I obviously had to try it. I am not great at baking and I usually never get a recipe correct on the first try but this recipe is so easy that I actually succeeded. Fortunately, not only did I succeed on the first try but they were extremely yummy. They are perfectly toasted on the outside and chewy on the inside. 

Easy Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate

Ingredients: 

  • 14 Oz. Sweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 2 Egg Whites 
  • 2/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 3 Tbls Water
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions: 

  • Combine water, salt and sugar in a small saucepan. 
  • Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil while stirring frequently to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat when fully dissolved.
  • In a large bowl, stir hot syrup and shredded coconut until fully combined. 
  • Cool mixture for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat over to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk egg white and vanilla until thick and foamy.
  • Gently fold egg white mixture into cooled coconut mixture.
  • Use a small spoon to scoop out the coconut mixture, about the size of golf balls. Space the scoops about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • In microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips until melted. 
  • Dip cooled macaroons in melted chocolate then drizzle extra chocolate on top.
  • Store in airtight container to avoid stale macaroons.
