I am running out the door for some errands, but I wanted to share this recipe for Chocolate Covered Macaroons.
This recipe for Chocolate Covered Macaroons came from People Magazine of all places. I figured it must be good if it comes from a real-life desperate housewife! And they really are something special. The sour cream balances the sweetness from the coconut and these are so easy to make. If you want to make it even simpler, skip the chocolate. But really, why would anyone want to skip that? Thanks Jill!
Chocolate Macaroons Ingredients //
- 2 (14-ounce) bags of shredded coconut
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweeten condensed milk
- 2 Tablespoons sour cream
- 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
How to Make // The Steps
Step 1: Mix together in a large bowl the sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, heavy cream, and vanilla.
Step 2: Add the shredded coconut.
Step 3: Mix together. Make sure that all of the coconuts are covered with the milk mixture. It takes a bit of elbow grease to get it all covered.
Step 4: Use an ice cream scoop and place mounds on parchment-lined baking sheets.
Step 5: Bake at 325 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until the coconut is nicely browned. Cool completely on a cooling rack.
Step 6: Melt the chocolate. I like to use the microwave for this, but you can also melt it using a double boiler. Dip the macaroon halfway. Let the chocolate harden in the fridge.
How to store //
These macaroons can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature but ideally you would want to store them in the fridge as the chocolate might melt. Consume within 3 to 4 days. If you want them to be a bit soft, just pop them in the microwave for about 8-10 seconds.

The one thing you should know is I am a big cookie enthusiast. On a Sunday evening you can find me and my kids in the kitchen preparing a different batch of cookies. We have to repeat this exercise every Sunday because we usually finish the entire batch of cookies within a day.
