3 Ingredient Coconut Macaroons - Condensed milk, coconut and chocolate! it could not be simpler

Hi Bold Bakers!

We all know and love traditional chocolate dipped coconut macaroons! They are full of coconutty flavor and have a great chewy texture. While these are pretty simple to whip up to begin with, I’ve gone a step farther and made them fool proof!

My 3 Ingredient Coconut Macaroons recipe is an amazing way to start baking. If you are a beginner baker or are simply looking for a super quick and delicious recipe, this one is for you! And you’ll be on your way to becoming a truly Bold Baker, baking with confidence!

How to Make Coconut Macaroons?

The base of this recipe is actually just 2 ingredients – sweetened condensed milk and shredded coconut! While traditional coconut macaroons are made using egg whites, these are egg free. All you do is mix the 2 ingredients in a big bowl, scoop, and then bake. After just 15 minutes in the oven, I dip the cookies in rich melted chocolate and allow to set.

What’s the Difference between a Macaron vs. Macaroon?

Macarons and macaroons are very different cookies. A macaroon is traditionally made with coconut while a macaron is meringue based and made with almond flour. French Macarons are considered much more difficult to make and finicky than these easy macaroons. You can give my French Macaron recipe a go but make sure you watch my step-by-step video so you’re ready.

Hey Gemma,

So great to always see your simple recipes.

I tried the macaroons and mine crumbled. I had to hold them with lots of causion to be able to apply choc. What could have been the problem?

However, even their state i did enjoy the taste.

I’ve done it again! I promise to make them again for a picture but these were INSTANTLY gobbled up. I barely got one and escaped with my hand intact. I used a teaspoon scoop to make the macaroons bite-size. At soon as they were out of the oven I pushed a quarter maraschino cherry in. I let them cool and then drizzled them with melted dark chocolate. Working on somethings using pumpkin for Thanksgiving. Love to all.
