Coconut Macaroons Recipe

I often get asked if Josh really helps in the kitchen, YES, he does. We are a great team and love cooking/baking together. I couldn’t do this blog without him.

To show off Josh’s culinary skills, I am posting HIS coconut macaroons today. I had nothing to do with these cookies-well I ate them, but that was all the help he got from me. He baked these all by his lonesome and they were fabulous!

Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Josh didn’t need the Kitchen Aid mixer for this recipe. He whipped up everything in a bowl-the old fashion way. The cookies came together in no time. He had fun getting his hands dirty with this recipe. The coconut dough is a sticky mess, but a fun one!

After the cookies cooled, he dipped them in chocolate. I would recommend using a higher quality of chocolate for dipping. If you like milk chocolate you can go that route, we prefer things a little darker though:) He had extra chocolate after dipping, so he drizzled the cookies with chocolate too.

The coconut cookies were sweet and chewy and the chocolate made them even better. They were pretty too:) I think you should hint to your sweetheart to make these cookies for you on Valentine’s Day. I know I am going to ask Josh to make them again:)

Coconut Macaroons Dipped in Chocolate

These easy coconut macaroons get dipped in chocolate! They are a fun cookie to make and eat!

Prep Time
5 minutes
Total Time
25 minutes
18 macaroons


  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ½ cups sweetened coconut
  • 10 ounces chopped chocolate for dipping cookies


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk, egg white, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir until combined. Add in the coconut and mix well.
  3. With a spoon, scoop up about 2 Tablespoons of the dough and place the dough balls on the baking sheets-about 2 inches apart. Form the cookies into mounds that have a peak at the top. Use your hands-squeeze the dough together and create a point at the top. Your hands will get sticky-you may need to wash them in between forming cookies.
  4. Bake cookies one sheet at a time for 15 to 20 minutes. The cookies will turn golden brown.
  5. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes or until they are firm and set. Remove with a spatula onto a cooling rack.
  6. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Make sure you keep stirring the chocolate every 20 seconds or so until chocolate is melted and smooth. You can melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water if you wish. Josh did it in the microwave though.
  7. Lay out a large piece of parchment paper. Dip the cookies into the chocolate-just so the bottoms are covered in chocolates. Set dipped cookies on the paper to dry. Dip all of the cookies. If you have extra chocolate drizzle the tops with chocolate for fun:)
  8. Let the cookies sit until the chocolate has dried. Enjoy!

  1. WOW! Wouldn’t these be the best Valentine’s Day gift for someone!! Just beautiful. Love that Josh made them (what a man). Who doesn’t like coconut?

  2. I found you by way of the Tasty Kitchen, and I’m so glad I did! Looking forward to following along with your culinary adventures. (P.S. Isn’t it wonderful to have a husband who enjoys spending time with you in the kitchen?)

  3. I saw your feature on Tasty Kitchen – congratulations!!! You guys are such a cute couple, and it’s sweet how you truly are a team 🙂 I love Josh’s touch of drizzling the macaroons with chocolate – they look fantastic!

  4. Hmmm…what on earth would it take for my hubby to make something like this?!?!? I have no clue, but he is cooking dinner for me this weekend and I am scared. All he can make are egg whites and turkey burgers. It will be blog worthy, I’m sure!

  5. Can’t wait to watch you this morning!

    This type of “macaroon” reminds me of my precious Grandmother (she passed away in September 2008). She could eat an entire box and LOVED every bite!

  6. These look so good! I really love coconut and these would also be a great Valentine cooke for my Dad. He loves it too. Hope your show goes well! You’ll do great!

  7. Great job, Josh! I adore coconut macaroons and these ones look particularly good. Good luck on the cooking segment today, Maria. You’ll be great!

  8. Josh, it sounds as though you and Adam (who is the other half of The Bite Me Kitchen) have a lot in common – these are his favorite cookies!! It’s such fun being a part of a couple that shares a passion for cooking! You two are so cute 😉

  9. My better half is a Josh too, although I don’t think mine enjoys the kitchen as much as your Josh does! These look so delicious. Perfect for Valentine’s Day, I love coconut.

  10. Wow! Coconut Macaroons are my FAVORITE! And your husband made them? That’s fantastic! It makes me happy the two of you spend time in the kitchen together – how fun!

    Thanks for the recipe! I’m definitely going to try this one…and soon!

  11. Can I just say I totally saw that article and jumped around my room…I felt like I was kind-of famous. By association. Just for “knowing” you guys. Seriously, it was great. You two are adorable 😀

    These look DE-licious. I haven’t quite tried to conquer macaroons yet but they are on my list!

  12. Great article on PW – how cool that you and Josh were featured! These macaroons look wonderful and kudos to Josh for making them. My husband makes chocolate chip cookies but that’s about all the baking he can handle 🙂

  13. OMG!! You are famous, I so want to hear your radio show! Josh is such a champ with these coconut macaroons. Agreed, you have to use the best chocolate you can get your hands on. I too am a fan of Scharffen Berger. Love coconut.
    Looks like we both whipped out the heart bowls for Valentines day! xo

  14. Coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate are my FAVORITE treats in college. Soo good. Josh has good taste. The next time we all see each other again, Josh should bring some! 🙂

    And congratulations on the feature on TPW. That is so cool. Your pic there is so cute. Can’t wait for the clip from today’s show.

  15. I really like this cookie and had made it once with not so much luck. They stuck to the pan. So I will have to try your way. Great job Josh!

    Also I can’t wait to see your cooking clip, I’m in VA so I will miss you.

  16. I also read PW ‘s blog and loved your interview. These cookies look delicious! My husband also helps in the kitchen. He comes to my rescue a lot since he has 20 plus years experience in catering!!!!

  17. When I was a kid…Dunkin Donuts made chocolate chip macaroons and they were my favorite. These look so similar!

    Darn…I missed you on GTU.

  18. pretty! The last time I made macaroon they were raw on top and burnt on the bottom. Granted that was manyyears ago and it wasn’t my oven. Maybe I shoukd give it another shot.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  19. Beautiful! They look delicious. A friend of mine taught me to pack the macaroon mixture into a shot glass, then slide it out onto a baking sheet. Just use your fingers to form it into a pyramid shape. It makes them look very professional.

  20. I’ve been looking through your posts for about 30 minutes, devouring every entry! I stumbled on this post and thought this recipe would be perfect for my dad’s birthday next week – he loves coconut and dark chocolate. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
