In my opinion, coconut and chocolate are one of the world’s best combinations. When I was younger I used to love Mounds and Almond Joy bars. Do you remember the commercial “Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. Almond Joy’s got nuts, Mounds don’t”? I might be dating myself a little, regardless I still love the combination.
These macaroons not only combine coconut and chocolate, but are one of the easiest things to put together. If you are looking for an impressive and delicious dessert, here it is!
2 (7 oz) packages of flaked coconut
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sweetened condensed milk and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add coconut and combine well. Add 1 cup of mini chocolate chips and mix well.
I use a cookie scoop and drop onto a very well greased aluminum foil lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned around edges.
Once cooked these are very difficult to remove from the cookie sheet without falling apart. I try to at least loosen them from the aluminum foil with a spatula until I can transfer them to a cooling rack.
Some will fall apart, which of course means you have to eat them!
