Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk

Most of the recipes for coconut macarons that I have tried use the classic condensed milk you’ve probably heard of. Sweetened condensed coconut milk is a product I found recently and had to try with this recipe because nothing goes better with coconut like more coconut. You can find this product at most grocery stores or online. I’ve attached a link for the brand I used in the 5 ingredient list below. Not only does this ingredient amp up the coconut flavor in the macarons, it also makes the recipe dairy free.

5 Ingredient Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macarons

These 5 ingredient coconut macarons are sweet and salty with just the right amount of chocolate to satisfy your cravings.

You can either dip the coconut macarons in melted chocolate or drizzle the chocolate over them.


2 egg whites

5 cups shredded coconut

1 cup sweetened condensed coconut milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup melting chocolate


Preheat oven to 325.

In a medium sized bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until it forms stiff white peaks and set aside.

In a large bowl mix coconut, salt and sweetened condensed coconut milk.

Fold egg whites into the coconut mixture.

Using my favorite cookie scooper or a spoon, scoop 1 inch ball of the coconut mixture onto parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden all around the macarons, rotating the baking sheets if necessary.

While macarons are baking, melt the chocolate in a double boiler.

With a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the macarons.

If you want to cover the coconut macarons completely, double the quantity of chocolate.

Dry on parchment paper until chocolate sets.

Serve and enjoy your coconut macarons with a cup of tea or coffee!
