My Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons are moist, chewy and perfectly sweet. The dark chocolate and coconut are a great combination and an excellent compliment to one another. Making Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons couldn’t be easier, rather than tempering chocolate (which can be a challenge) I simply melt dark chocolate chips and dip the macaroons in that. Quick, easy and delicious, it’s a fun recipe to get kids involved in and one they will definitely enjoy eating.
Here’s my Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons recipe:
- 4 Egg whites
- ½ Cup Sugar
- ½ Teaspoon Salt
- ¾ Cup Sugar
- 14 Oz Sweetened Coconut, shredded
- 1 ¼ Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup Chocolate chips
-Whisk egg whites and salt, once whites start to develop into a foam, slowly add ½ cup of sugar to form a meringue, whisk to firm peaks
-Combine remaining ingredients, fold into the meringue
-Using an ice cream scoop, scoop macaroons onto a lightly oiled parchment sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350F for approximately 15 minutes.
-Melt chocolate chips over a double boiler, or microwave is fine. Go slowly with a microwave, 15 seconds at a time, stir thoroughly after every microwave attempt, depending on how powerful the microwave, 3 or 4 times is probably more than enough, don’t burn the chocolate in the microwave
-Dip half of the Macaroon in chocolate, or drizzle chocolate over the top.
