pretty darn good just in their plain form. But add a couple of drops of food coloring, a dab of imagination and possibly a few props and you’ve got a centerpiece!
If you’ve got kids aboard – even toddlers – these are a great kid project. There might be a bit of a mess, but they are easy and great for those who don’t have very long attention spans. Just don’t blame me for the sugar buzz!
Make coconut macaroons with only two ingredients. They're fun anytime.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 20 mins
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces – aka Eagle Brand in the US, Leche Dulcera in Latin America)
- 1 bag flaked or shredded coconut (14 ounces)
Drop by teaspoons (these are very rich, don’t make them too large) onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 350°F. Baking time will vary by brand of milk – some are slightly thinner than others and will take a few more minutes to bake. When done, there will be just a few golden spots on each cookie.
Remove from the oven and let sit on the cookie sheet for just a minute to firm up a bit, then remove to a plate or cooling rack.
Now for the fun – making macaroons for a special occasion!
