Coconut Macaroons

Though I do not crave sweets of any sort, I love coconut!  Coconut macaroons are a wonderful treat!  Every once in a while I take the time to make this recipe.  It is a very simple recipe and these coconut macaroons are a very indulgent treat.  I like to dip just a portion of the coconut macaroon in chocolate and I leave half of the macaroons without any chocolate on them.

These store well and taste good even when they have been sitting for a while.


  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups sweetened coconut
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 small bag of Nestle chocolate morsels for dipping, if desired


  • Mix together all ingredients.
  • With wet hands, form into balls and drop on parchment covered cookie sheet.  Balls will not be uniform.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Let cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from parchment with a spatula.
  • Melt chocolate morsels as per package directions and dip cookies in melted chocolate, if desired
