Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons- a delicious cookie recipe that will please any coconut lover!

Last week was the first week in the history of my blog that I only posted one recipe. Yikes! Just shows how crazy my life has been. I spent a lot of time helping with the Book Fair at my sons’ school, and managed to pick up a head cold. Not only did I not have time for blogging, I didn’t have much time for cooking. We ate a lot of sandwiches last week! My boys are really looking forward to Thanksgiving. Ah, real food at last. 😉
Learn how to make Coconut Macaroons dipped in chocolate. An easy and delicious cookie for any coconut lover!
This recipe for macaroons has been in my file for a few months. I tried some chocolate dipped macaroons at a wedding and I loved them. I had never made macaroons before because I didn’t think my boys would like them. If they didn’t eat them, then I would be forced to eat the entire batch. Good for the taste buds, not good for my hips. Anyway, after trying them dipped in chocolate, I knew I had to re-create them at home.
Coconut Macaroons- this easy recipe for macaroons contains no eggs. They are so yummy, especially dipped in chocolate!I found a recipe that called for sweetened condensed milk and figured it had to be good, ‘cuz I love that stuff. I was right. These were darn yummy. Not as pretty as the ones at the wedding, but they sure were delicious. And unfortunately, um, I mean fortunately, all four of my boys loved them. There were no leftovers. Not a crumb.
Chocolate Dipped Macaroon Cookies- sure to delight coconut and chocolate fans everywhere!These cookies are so simple and easy to make. You don’t even need a mixer! I highly recommend baking them on cookie sheets that have been lined with silicone baking sheets, or at the very least parchment paper. They are pretty sticky!

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons
Chewy coconut macaroons dipped in melted chocolate.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 5 1/2 cups coconut
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • For dipping:
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp shortening or vegetable oil


Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir till well blended. I like to just use my hands. Drop by spoonfuls onto silpat lined cookie sheets.

Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes. Cool completely. Melt chocolate and oil in a small glass bowl in the microwave at half power. Dip macaroons halfway into chocolate and place on silicone baking sheets or parchment paper till set.


It takes a few hours for the chocolate to set completely, so plan accordingly.

  1. Love this recipe. Very easy. I made them a little smaller & got over 3 dozen. Half dipped in chocolate & half putting have a cherry on top before baking.

  2. The best macaroons recipe, I tried three of them and this one was the best. Really yummy and finally my chocolate was just perfect
    For dipping. Thank you

  3. Hi can I roll them into balls with my hand or does that make them too firm?

    • They are pretty sticky, but you could try rolling them in balls. They will probably still spread as they cook though, so it might not be worth the trouble. You could certainly give it a try!

  4. Have you tried freezing these?

  5. Do you use sweetened or regular coconut?

  6. How many cookies does this recipe make?

    • It is pretty adaptable, you can make the cookies large or small depending on how many you need. I usually get about 24 cookies.
