Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons are scrumptious little bites of sweetened coconut dipped in creamy milk chocolate, like Mounds candy bars.
Since Thanksgiving we have been busy baking cookies, and I have to say these little Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons are definitely our favorite so far. Of course, we have to taste test all these cookies for you! It is a sacrifice we make so we can describe them for you! 😉 If you love coconut, these macaroons will become your favorite too. And since Mr. Flavor Mosaic says it is not dessert unless there is chocolate, well I had to dip these little bites of yumminess into the creamy melty stuff.
The other thing I love about these cookies is that they are so easy. Only 5 ingredients for the macaroons only, and 7 ingredients if you dip them in chocolate. You can’t get much easier than that. This would be a great recipe for the kids to help you with. They could mix the coconut mixture or dip the coconut macaroons in the chocolate.
These would also be super easy to customize to make your own. You could add an almond on the top of each one and turn it into a mini Almond Joy type candy bar. Or you could add maraschino cherries to tops of each macaroon. Or add white chocolate for a change of pace. The possibilities are endless.
