Ingredients

  • 7 ounce package sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces Chocolate Bark

Instructions

Making the Macaroons

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
    TIP: for easy cleanup line the sheet with parchment paper and spray the paper with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, fold together by hand the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and the coconut. This is best done by hand with a spatula. A mixer will break down the coconut.
  • Drop from tablespoon, either with a measuring spoon or a medium sized cookie scoop, onto the greased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the flakes of coconut start to turn a golden brown color. Be careful to not let them burn.
  • Let the macaroons cool slightly on the baking sheet and then move them to a rack to finish cooling completely.

Drizzling the Chocolate

  • Use the double broiler method to melt the chocolate. You can do this easily by placing a bowl on top of a pot of boiling water. The boiling water will melt the chocolate without letting it burn.
  • Place the cooling rack of macaroons over a sheet of wax paper and drizzle the chocolate all over the tops. The chocolate will harden up in about 5-10 minutes.
  • Store covered at room temperature.
