Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

Overloaded with coconut and generously coated with dark chocolate, Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons made it to my favorite cookie list for the holidays or even for everyday grab and go piece of dessert. A small ball of coconut, baked until golden brown, then dipped into melted chocolate for a good balance of sweet, salty and chocolatey indulgence.

Coconut Macaroons

This is the kind o Macaroons that I know, made from sweetened condensed milk and desiccated coconut. Simple, easy, Fool proof and no fuzz in making it compared to French Macarons. It may not look as fancy and delicate as French Macarons but it’s delicious in its own way, and when you see how simple and easy it is to make it, you wouldn’t even think twice in trying it (assuming of course that you like coconut desserts). I like the simplicity of this dessert as it once again prove that you can have a nice delicious piece of dessert by juts using simple ingredients.

The base basically was made using 3 basic ingredients (coconut, sweetened condensed milk and egg white) if not counting vanilla extract and salt because you could make this without it. After that, you can enjoy it on its own even without dipping it in chocolate, but I personally would not skip it. For me, the chocolate dip is a MUST and I think you would agree with me (hopefully) once you try it. I you are not sure, dip few pieces and leave few pieces plain. Then taste and let me know which one you like best.

To Dip or Not to Dip

I am always bias when it comes to dipping or not dipping. I am always on the dip it team, it’s chocolate! So why not? I like using dark chocolate to dip the bottom, I find that the dark chocolate flavor and slight bitterness balances the sweetness of this coconut macaroons. You can use any chocolate that you like, but bear in mind when you make the decision that since this recipe uses condensed milk which is quite sweet already. Using semi-sweet or white chocolate (definitely don’t) will make it even sweeter. But if you are really on to sweet stuff, then feel free to use semi-sweet chocolate, or white for an extra sweet dessert. I have 2 video recipes on how to make chocolate ganache. One is using heavy cream which is the traditional recipe, and one that uses milk to make it lighter. You can use either one, it will be great.
