Chocolate is one of the most important ingredients in traditional cooking and baking. It has an intense, deep flavor that complements other flavors well. Chocolate was once so rare it only existed as a luxury item for royalty, but now it’s accessible to anyone who can afford its high price tag.
Chocolate is a popular food that comes in many different flavors. Some of the most popular chocolate brands include Ghirardelli, Lindt, and Godiva.
I’m a big fan of simple holiday entertaining. If it can’t be done in under an hour, I’m probably not interested. I’m crazy about these chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons since they only take 45 minutes to make.
Plus, they’re just stunning. Everyone would be like, “Who’s that girl and why didn’t I think of it?” if you showed up to a cookie exchange with these babies. Because everyone knows how heated and competitive cookie exchanges can be. It may seem nice, but it’s really a room full of women who believe they’ve baked the finest stuff in the world.
And we all know that’s not the case, because you have the coconut macaroons, which are the actual champions.
Chocolate-dipped macaroons: a step-by-step guide
Coconut macaroons are ridiculously simple to prepare. Which is strange considering they seem to be rather opulent! To prepare these chocolate-dipped macarons, whisk together some egg whites until firm peaks form. This is crucial since it is the frothy egg whites that give these coconut macaroons their rise in the oven.
Fold in the rest of the ingredients very carefully once the egg whites have been whisked (be cautious not to knock out the air in the egg whites!). Standard ingredients like sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, shredded coconut, salt, and flour are used in this coconut macaroon recipe, so you should already have most of them on hand.
Scoop the macaron mixture onto a baking dish with a tiny ice cream scoop and bake for 35 minutes. The coconut macaroons should develop a wonderful golden brown hue all throughout and inflate up into huge domes as they bake. After the macaroons have cooled to room temperature, dip them in the melted chocolate and leave them aside to cool fully before eating.
These coconut macaroons keep for a few days in an airtight jar on your counter. You may eat these macarons for days after you create them since they don’t get stale.
In other news, the weekend is approaching, and I’m ready to make a sugar storm. I’ll be returning to Boston for nearly a month next week, and I need to get some blog pieces written before I go! Then it’s going to see relatives on the east coast for the holidays. Then there’s Alex’s New Year’s Eve visit. After that, Rebe and I are planning a sister vacation to New Fork City! I’m talking about New York City! It’s like a second home to me, and I can’t wait to go there.
Finally, please substantiate my allegation that cookie exchanges are full of insane ladies and baked products. Also, since I haven’t gone to either Boston or New York in a year, feel free to provide recommendations.
- 5 cups shredded sweetened coconut
- 2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk 14 oz
- 2 beaten egg whites
- 3 tblsp flour (all-purpose)
- vanilla extract (two tablespoons)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 3 minutes in a standing mixer, whip egg whites until firm peaks form. Gently mix in the remaining ingredients until they are evenly distributed. The mixture should not melt back into the basin and should keep its form. To remove extra liquid, strain the mixture through a mesh strainer if it does not keep its form.
- Scoop the mixture onto a silpat- or parchment-lined baking sheet using a 1/4-inch scoop. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the macarons are golden brown on both sides. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack.
- Melt your chocolate while the macarons are cooling. In a microwave-safe dish, place chopped chocolate and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each.
- Dip the bottoms of the macaroons in the molten chocolate and set them back on the cooling rack to solidify. Voila!
