Chocolate Drizzled Macaroons

I feel like I’m the only one who LOVES Macaroon cookies around here. I did however hear a mmmm from my youngest after a big bite. These are so soft and chewy. I always add a drizzle of chocolate over the top for fun. Enjoy my fellow coconut fans!

  • 3 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp almond extract or vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 egg whites beaten stiff
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips melted for drizzling


  • Preheat the oven to 350. Mix coconut, almond extract, salt, milk, and cream of tartar in a large bowl until combined. Fold in egg whites. With a large cookie scoop, scoop onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 13-16 minutes or until the edges and tops of cookies are golden brown. Let cool completely. Drizzle melted chocolate over cookies. I put the chocolate in a ziplock, snip the edge and drizzle it.

    Good one kusf. There are plenty of people who like shaved coconut, especially in cookies.
