Let’s get right to it.

To make these Chocolate Coconut Macaroons, simply melt the chocolate, then mix it along with all of the other ingredients in a bowl.

My 4 year old son Luke helped me make these. He loves helping me in the kitchen! And lately we have been baking together a lot!

One of the main ingredients of this recipe is Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk, which is my favorite condensed milk of all! And it is what makes these macaroons super soft, fudgy, and delicious!

After mixing the ingredients together, simply scoop them onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

And bake them until they are just set. Don’t over bake the macaroons or they will become dry and tough.

The secret is to bake them at a lower temperature (I bake them at 325ºF) and take them out when they look set, which takes about 18 minutes or so.

The regular coconut macaroons are easier to tell when they are done baking, because they get lightly golden on top. But the chocolate ones are already dark, so a bit trickier to tell.

Just lightly poke one with your hands and if it feels dry and set on the outside, instead of soft and wet, then it is ready. Plus the color will be duller than when you first put it in the oven.

Once the cookies have cooled down, dip them in melted chocolate, if you wish. My husband preferred the ones without dipping in the chocolate. I like the dipped ones better, because more chocolate = more happiness!

And if you are interested in making the little macaroon nests, it’s very easy.

After scooping the macaroons, and before baking them, use a teaspoon to form an indentation in the middle of the mounds.

And bake just like that. Right after baking, and while the macaroons are still hot, place chocolate candy eggs on top of the nests, so they will stick to the macaroons.

And you can also dip the nests in the melted chocolate, but I’ve decided to leave mine plain.

And from the recipes above, most are made with condensed milk. And like I said above, I vouch always for Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed milk, because it’s my favorite!
