Who said chocolate dipped coconut macaroons aren’t for breakfast? Truth is after having three of them first thing this morning, I felt I was done with any breakfast caloric intake I had left.
I recently found @BrownEyedBaker on Twitter when she posted her recipe for Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons. I’m usually not that big on macaroons but my beau is big on coconut. Since these were dipped in chocolate and her photos made them look so good, I thought I would gave them a try.
The recipe has only a few ingredients and is great for those who need a wheat-free, nut-free or dairy-free dessert. (I have many friends in one or more of these categories) It’s also VERY easy to make so a good recipe to make with the kids.
I have to warn you that they are very sweet. For some, I realize this is not an issue but a welcome advantage. My coconut macaroons didn’t turn out as well as Brown Eyed Baker’s did in her photos. Maybe I needed to have my macaroons in for longer to get a little darker on top or my convection oven creates a different result.
At any rate, I’m sure they tasted just as good because mine were also delicate, two-bite coconut pyramids of sweetness and chocolatey goodness. I admit in my inhaling of these macaroons that some became one-bite morsels.
Visit Brown Eyed Baker’s post for the complete recipe. It makes three dozen so there’s plenty to share.
