    swissms's Note:

    From Cook's Illustrated. Be sure to mix the cream of coconut thoroughly before using (shake cans), as the mixture separates upon standing. Unsweetened desiccated coconut is commonly sold in natural food stores or Asian markets. If you are unable to find any, use all sweetened flaked or shredded coconut, but reduce the amount of cream of coconut to ½ cup, omit the corn syrup, and toss 2 tablespoons cake flour with the coconut before adding the liquid ingredients. For larger macaroons, shape haystacks from a generous ¼ cup of batter and increase the baking time to 20 minutes. For the chocolate-dipped: Using the two-stage melting process for the chocolate helps ensure that it will be at the proper consistency for dipping the cookies. // Note: Be sure to use sweetened cream of coconut as this is the primary sweetener for the macaroons.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 24


    one-inc ...

    Units: US | Metric


    • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (optional)


    1. 1
      Adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 375 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and lightly spray parchment with nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Whisk together cream of coconut, corn syrup, egg whites, vanilla, and salt in small bowl; set aside. Combine unsweetened and sweetened coconuts in large bowl; toss together, breaking up clumps with fingertips. Pour liquid ingredients into coconut and mix with rubber spatula until evenly moistened. Chill dough for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto parchment-lined cookie sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Form cookies into loose haystacks with fingertips, moistening hands with water as necessary to prevent sticking. Bake until light golden brown, about 15 minutes, turning cookie sheets from front to back and switching from top to bottom racks halfway through baking.
    4. 4
      Cool cookies on cookie sheets until slightly set, about 2 minutes; remove to wire rack with metal spatula.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      Cool cookies to room temperature on wire rack, about 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Melt 8 ounces chocolate in small heatproof bowl set over pan of almost-simmering water, stirring once or twice, until smooth. (To melt chocolate in microwave, heat at 50 percent power for 3 minutes and stir. If chocolate is not yet entirely melted, heat an additional 30 seconds at 50 percent power.) Remove from heat; stir in remaining 2 ounces chocolate until smooth. Holding macaroon by pointed top, dip bottom and ½ inch up sides of each cookie in chocolate, scrape off excess with finger and place on cookie sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate sets, about 15 minutes.

      The first reviwer who was disapointed and said they were not sweet oviously used coconut MILK, not cream of coconut. Cream of coconut is in the mixed drnk section of the store, look for a brand like coco lopez. Cream of coconut is Very sweet, were as coconut milk is not sweet at all, and slighty salty. This is agreat recipe I have made dozens of times to rave reviews!

      Absolutely great macaroons, these! I was tempted to make all the coconut sweetened after reading the previous review), but decided to stick to the ingredients as given (half sweetened & half not), & was happy that I did ~ The sweetness from the cream of coconut, the corn syrup, the 3 cups of sweetened coconut, AND the chocolate was plenty for my sweet tooth to enjoy! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      The macaroons tasted different from what I'm used to in regards to macaroons. They weren't as sweet and were slightly too salty. The chocolate definitely helps! I made these as a dessert option for a luau. They were the least popular.
