Ingredients

  • 1 14 oz bag sweetened flaked coconut this is slightly more than 5 and 1/2 cups coconut
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk you will leave about 2 tbsp in the can
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 oz chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine *almost* the entire can of sweetened condensed milk (leave about 2 tablespoons in the can) with coconut. Stir to combine. Add in vanilla and stir to combine then set aside.
  • In a separate bowl combine egg whites and salt and beat until soft peaks form.
  • Gently fold egg whites into coconut mixture. Mix just until combined.
  • Scoop or spoon mixture, about two tablespoons, onto baking sheets that are covered with silicone baking mats or parchment paper sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. 
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven, then immediately remove cookies from baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once macaroons have cooled, melt chocolate chips according to package directions. Dip each macaroon into melted chocolate, then transfer to a baking sheet that is covered with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. No non-stick spray is required for this. Allow chocolate to set up completely, typically taking 1-2 hours. 

Notes

You do not need to specifically measure the sweetened condensed milk, just pour most of it into your bowl, leaving approximately 2 TBSP in the can.
Make sure to use a silicone baking mat (highly recommended) or if you don't have silicone baking mats, use parchment paper sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  The sweetened condensed milk makes these quite sticky!
Remove cookies from the baking sheets immediately after they come out the oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack. Spraying the wire cooling rack with non-stick cooking spray first is highly recommended. 
Macaroons can be dipped into chocolate or chocolate can be drizzled over the tops.  
Store covered, best eaten within 3-4 days.
