Chocolate dipped coconut macaroons

super late post alert. i made these before xmas.

I think holidays and baking are like two peas in a pod, you just can’t have one without the other. It’s not right, so I’m not even surprised that I was in the mood to bake something fancy and delicious, and I was ever so excited to try these amazing sounding chocolate dipped coconut macaroons.
Another super simple recipe for something that turns out magnificent.

NEED
14 oz can condensed milk
14 oz bag of coconut flakes
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 large egg whites
Chocolate chips

Beat the egg whites and salt together and then combine with coconut mix.
On your silicone baking mat/parchment paper drop spoonfuls of this mix.

Bake for 20-22 minutes

melt the chocolate while you’re waiting for them to cool and press the bottoms of the macaroons into it, i also took my spoon and drizzled a little on the tops. let the chocolate set, and enjoy

refrigerate in a container. (if you don’t eat them all first 🙂 )

note to self: get parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, because prying these bad boys off my cookie sheet was not fun and made me feel like i needed to eat a lot to compensate for all the hard work of getting them off, and resulted in a little bit of macaroon dismemberment.
