Coconut Macaroons

This is one of our most recent recipes from our Pre-School Cookery Classes, the kids loved getting messy with these chocolate and coconut and macaroons.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs whites

  • 150 g desiccated coconut

  • 50 g ground almonds

  • 250 g caster sugar

  • 60 g dark chocolate


Method

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC and line a couple of baking trays with baking or rice paper.

  • 2. Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl until they form soft peaks.

  • 3. Fold in the coconut, almonds and sugar.

  • 4. Take small handfuls of the mixture and roll into a ball, place on the prepared trays and then flatten slightly with your fingers. 

  • 5. Cook for about 15 minutes or until just golden around the edges. Leave to cool on the trays.

  • 6. Melt the chocolate over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water to avoid the chocolate getting too hot.

  • 7. Remove the cooled macaroons from their paper and place on another piece of baking paper.

  • 8. Drizzle with the melted chocolate, allow the chocolate to set and enjoy!
