My Recipe Box - 3 Ingredient Macaroons


This was my inspiration for 3-ingredient coconut macaroons. However our condensed milk is 300 ml or 10 ounces. Since the coconut and condensed milk are equal, I used


INGREDIENTS

1 (14-oz.)  10 - oz bag sweetened flaked coconut (about 5 1/3 cups) I didn't measure
1 (14-oz.) 10-oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS




Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.


In a large bowl, combine the sweetened flaked coconut, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract and stir until well combined. Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons, scoop out 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture and arrange the macaroons on the baking sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart.

I got 25 good sized macaroons for about $6.


Bake the macaroons for 15 to 18 minutes until they’re golden brown. 
Mine too 15 minutes.
Remove the macaroons from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely. 

I made melted chocolate but it was difficult to drizzle. So I found this recipe for a drizzle that will harden.

INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons melted margarine or 2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons hot water
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla



DIRECTIONS
Combine melted margarine or oil, cocoa, and hot water.
Blend in confectioners' sugar and vanilla.
Pour or spread on brownies or cake.
Glaze will harden when cool.
