Best Ever Coconut Macaroons for 5 Ingredients or Less #SundaySupper

Coconut Macaroons_main |

If there was ever a recipe that I wanted everyone to try ..  because it’s insanely easy and so delicious, it’s THESE best ever coconut macaroons.

And the best part? They are dipped in chocolate . . .

AND these babies only require 5 ingredients. 5 ingredients! No egg whites, no vanilla. .  only 4 ingredients if you only use one kind of chocolate.



You simply start with sweetened shredded coconut and mix it with sweetened condensed milk. Then, you add some almond slices and – I used my cookie scoop– scoop out tablespoon sized coconut balls and place onto a prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

While your coconut macaroons are cooling, cut up your chocolate (I used a mix of semi-sweet and bittersweet) and melt it.

When the coconut macaroons are ready and have cooled a bit, simply dip them into the chocolate and let cool on parchment paper (I used my Roul’Pat non-stick countertop workstation mat). You can also pop them into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to help the chocolate set faster.

Best Ever Coconut Macaroons
Recipe makes 18-20 tablespoon sized coconut macaroons.
Recipe type: Dessert

  • 3 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup almond slices
  • 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 oz. bittersweet chocolate; chopped

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or your silicone non-stick baking mat. In a large bowl, combine the coconut flakes, sweetened condensed milk and the almonds.
  2. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, place tablespoon sized macaroons on your baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the macaroons are lightly golden brown.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
  4. While the macaroons are cooling, using a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chopped chocolate in :30 intervals until softened and melted. Whisk together until smooth. Dip in the coconut macaroons and set on parchment paper to allow the chocolate to set. You can also place the chocolate dipped macaroons in your refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes if desired. Enjoy!

    Those looks INCREDIBLE and so simple. Can the nuts be omitted? Would it still produce the same results or is it a necessary ingredient? Thank you for hosting #SundaySupper this week!

    I absolutely love macaroons — they’re probably my all-time favorite cookie. I’ve never made them using sweetened condensed milk, though. And I’m sure those little almond slices must add some great texture. Will definitely have to try this recipe!

    • hipfoodiemom

      Hi Jamie! yes, I hope you do and yes the almonds are a great addition and add some texture!

    These macaroons look delicious. Even more incredible, you’ve made these using 4 ingredients only. Makes it a far easier & delicious recipe than many out there for sure!

    I’m also a choc coconut fiend :)

    I just made macaroons for Passover, but didn’t use sweetened condensed milk. It must add such an amazing thick/creaminess to the cookies…I will have to try that next time!
