How to make coconut macaroons
Trust me, these chocolate coconut macaroons are easy! They’ve only got 5 main ingredients to worry about.
The most important step of this recipe is whisking the egg whites. Warm up, because you’re going to be putting some muscle into these!
Whisk until the egg whites are light, frothy, and fluffy. If you’ve ever whipped egg whites to soft peaks, this is the stage BEFORE that. We’re not quite making a meringue here.
Truly, the hardest part is whipping the egg whites! Once you’ve got them fluffed up, add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Then, drop large spoonfuls onto a pachment paper-lined baking sheet, pop ’em in the oven for 12 minutes — and you’re done!
