Chocolate dipped coconut macaroons are a super easy treat that’s quick to make.  These chewy Christmas cookies will definitely be a hit at a cookie exchange.  Grab some egg whites and whip up the best macaroons ever!



  • 5 1/3 cups sweetened coconut flakes (396g)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar (135g)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (30g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate chips, optional (170g)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.  Line two 11×17-inch cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Use your hands to combine the coconut flakes, sugar, flour, and salt in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.
  3. Mix in the egg whites and vanilla extract until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  4. Drop the mixture in rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared trays, spacing the macaroons about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake each tray one at a time for 18-20 minutes at 325 F, until the macaroons are nicely browned.
  6. Let the macaroons cool on the parchment paper for a few minutes, then peel them off the paper and let them cool on a wire rack.
  7. To make chocolate dipped macaroons, pour the chocolate chips into a shallow heatproof bowl and set over a saucepan of gently simmering water.  Make sure that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.  Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted.
  8. Dip the bottoms of the macaroons in the melted chocolate, then place on parchment-lined cookie sheets.  Drizzle the remaining chocolate over the macaroons and chill for 30 minutes to harden the chocolate.
