Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroon Swoons- Recipe

So, blogger fail. I should have taken cute well posed and filtered pictures of each step in this process, but to be perfectly honest I didn't expect these to turn out as well as they did!

They were so flippin' easy that I was sure I was missing a step. Yet, never the less, here you have it:

Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroon Swoons


* Wax paper for the cookie sheet
* 1 large egg white
* 1 Tbsp of sugar
* 1/4 tsp of Vanilla Extract
* 1/8 tsp of Almond Extract
* 3/4 cup of Flaked Coconut, sweetened
* 1 tub of Dolci Frutta chocolate dip (HERE is a picture for reference) 


1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and make sure that the oven rack is in the center. This would also be a good time to cover your cookie sheet with wax paper.

2. In a large bowl, mix together your egg white, sugar, vanilla, almond, and a pinch of salt until all is dissolved uniformly, then add your coconut

3. With your hands, mix all ingredients together until the coconut is completely covered. The mixture should be too wet, so add a little extra coconut if needed. I love working food with my hands for two reasons; one, its way more fun, and two, working food with your hands tends to leave you with a much more accomplished feeling. Just food for thought...

4. Once ingredients are well mixed, take a spoonful of the mixture into your hands and form a small ball, and place on your cookie sheet. Do this until the mixture is gone.

5. Place your formed macaroons into the oven for 15-20 minutes. You want the tops to be a crispy golden brown.

6. Once macaroons are done, remove them from the oven, and let them cool on a cooling rack completely.

7. Once the macaroons have cooled, take your Dolci Frutta, and follow the directions for melting. Dip the "ugly side" (the bottom) of your macaroon into the chocolate. Place macaroons upside down on a plate so that the chocolate does not get ruined.

8. Place your newly chocolate covered macaroons in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened.

9. Enjoy! (...but not all at once...)
