Last year I made a batch of chocolate macaroons but didn’t use my mom’s recipe, just one I found online that I thought looked the same. They weren’t the same and I really didn’t like the melted chocolate. Cocoa is just way better in this recipe in my opinion! So this year I used my mom’s recipe and we were all quite pleased. The recipe yields about 18 cookies with my medium cookie scoop, make sure you make a couple of batches because this will go fast!
Chocolate Macaroons (family recipe)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups unsweetened coconut (I only had sweetened and that was fine)
3 T cocoa powder, more if you want them to be more chocolatey!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix milk, coconut, and cocoa powder in a double boiler until well blended and warm. Scoop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (if you want to be able to remove them after baking!) Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool, then eat with a tall glass of milk!
