In the Kitchen ~ Chewy Chocolate Macaroons ~ 7/16/15

This recipe came from a cookbook called "America's Favorites:  Bake Sale". 

Chewy Chocolate Macaroons

5 1/3 cups sweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 cups cocoa
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
About 24 red candied cherries halved (optional)

Heat oven to 350 F.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Stir together the coconut and cocoa in a large bowl.  Stir in sweetened condensed milk ad vanilla until well blended.

Drop by rounded teaspoon onto prepared cookie sheet.  Press cherry half into center of each cookie, if desired.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until almost set.

Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.


I wasn't sure how well these macaroons would go over at evening Church because I know a lot of people don't like coconut.  I was pleasantly surprised that they were gone in a matter of minutes!

How about you?  Do you like coconut?
