The Easiest Coconut Macaroons

These are the EASIEST Coconut Macaroons you'll ever make! Only 5 simple ingredients you probably have on hand produces the chewiest, sweetest cookies!So you guys know how much I hate the TV show House Hunters, right?

I still hate it with a fiery passion in my soul.

And my family? Loves it. It’s always on in my house, probably just to spite me. I cannot fathom how anyone with emotions can successfully watch an episode without erupting into a manic rage. It is so infuriating.

Everyone on that show is aggravating, nit-picking every.single.thing about each house like they’re being paid to criticize every excruciating detail (which they probably are). And they have such crazy, outlandish requests which always baffle me to no end.

“My husband travels a lot for work, so we need to be close to an airport… but we want to live in the country.”

“Well, this house is about 200 miles from a jail. So if a prisoner hypothetically broke out of jail, he’d come straight for our house since it’s so convenient.”

“This spare bedroom holds a bed, a dresser, and a nightstand, but it’s too small. Guests who stay over will feel uncomfortable, since they’ll likely spend all day in this room like antisocial weirdos.”

“I’m a voyeur who likes spying on her neighbors, so there must be a window in every room in the house, including the closets.”

“We want to live five minutes from downtown but we want a big yard for our kids.”

“Well, this is on the beach like we wanted, but now we’ll probably track sand in the house. Does this house have sand-preventing floors?”

“We asked for a duplex, you gave us a duplex, but we don’t want to hear our neighbors, so let’s complain to the real estate agent about it.”

“I want an open floor plan but I also want the home to be 400 sq. feet.”

“This house has white appliances. I want black. Let’s not buy it for this reason alone.”

“This house has a hideous paint job. Let’s not buy it for this reason alone.”

“I want a house on the beach but I don’t want to hear the ocean.”

See? Totally infuriating. I still don’t understand how this show is on-air. Or how they find that many irritating people to try out for it.

End rant.

Anywho, for the past couple of months I’ve been searching for the perfect Coconut Macaroon recipe and folks, these are it. They’re perfectly domed, chewy bites of heaven that are bursting with toasty coconut. There are a couple of different ways to prepare coconut macaroons, but I chose the sweetened condensed milk way. To me, it’s easier than the egg white version and produces a sweeter, better-tasting macaroon. (And by the way, these are macaroons. Macarons, with one ‘o’, are the French style sandwich cookies).

These are the EASIEST Coconut Macaroons you'll ever make! Only 5 simple ingredients you probably have on hand produces the chewiest, sweetest cookies!So if you’re looking for the easiest coconut macaroons ever, this is your recipe!

Enjoy!

    Love macaroons. Here is the problem ….is it possible to substitute glutenfree flour for regular.?

  2. I love a good macaroon! Love how easy these are!

  3. That is hilarious! I loved your comments on House Hunters! So true!
    I still love the show, though. I’m totally nosy and love to see other houses and how much you can get for your money in other parts of the country. I tend to get upset when they pick the “wrong” one, but I know it’s all arranged ahead of time and I really shouldn’t take it so personally. Ha!

  4. Haaa! Haaa! Love your scenarios from the show. I don’t watch it but it sounds annoying! These macaroons are calling my name. I’m so glad they’re made with sweetened condensed milk. I must make them! Thanks for sharing. 😉

  5. these macaroons are TOTALLY perfect-they’re so pretty!

  6. really easy to make! Love it!

  7. These macaroons sounds so great! I’ll have to dip them in milk and dark chocolate.

  8. I just wanted to tell you I almost died laughing reading what you said about House Hunters! Especially their gripes! Thank you for the laughs!

  9. What type of chocolate do you melt for the bottoms? Baking them now but taking longer to get them to look like your picture.

      Hi Non, I used a melting chocolate like CandiQuik! Smooth, easy to use and perfect for dipping. If you only have chocolate chips, use those – just melt them with a little bit of shortening or oil until smooth.
