Crisp, caramelised outer, with a soft and tender coconutty centre - we love this super easy recipe made with only 3 main ingredients.  Perfect for cooks big and small to have a little fun with without too much mess!  We love them drizzled with dark chocolate but also delicious plain and simple...

 

Look out for coconut flakes or shredded coconut if you can find it for extra crunch in your macaroons, but desiccated coconut works just beautifully if you can't get it.

Once you've tried out the original recipe - you can step it up with a twist of your own.... Try adding lime, orange or lemon zest to the mixture or make a little dip in the top of each macaroon and fill with Carnation Caramel.  

Easy Coconut Macaroons
They were so easy and delicious
plumbear

Desiccated coconut or coconut flakes (we like a combination of both)

400g

Vanilla or almond extract

2tsp

Dark chocolate (optional)

115g

You will also need:

2 greased and parchment-lined baking sheets

Step 1 of 4

Preheat the oven to 160°C, (140°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 3.

Step 2 of 4

Mix together the condensed milk, coconut and vanilla extract in a large bowl. 

Step 3 of 4

For a perfectly round shape, press the mixture into a round ice cream scoop or tablespoon measure, then tap out onto the baking sheet.  If you prefer them free-form drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets.  

Step 4 of 4

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until turning brown at the edges.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Chocolate drizzle: melt 115g dark chocolate in the microwave and place half in a small bowl.  Dip each the base of each bottom into the chocolate then place back onto the tray to set.  Use the remaining melted chocolate to drizzle over the macaroons using a piping bag or teaspoon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and delicious! (Better than shop bought) I make these regularly for my family, friends and neighbours - they go down an absolute treat! Super easy recipe and instructions, and they taste even better than shop bought. I make regular ones, triple chocolate ones and also mini ones that work perfectly as 'cake pops' for young people or those with less of a sweet tooth. Fab find - a firm favourite!
