Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroon Recipe Tips:

  • Coconut:  You can use sweetened flaked or shredded coconut.
  • Chocolate:  Semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips are both delicious.  You can also leave them out if you wish.
  • Baking:  Coconut Macaroons do not spread out during baking, so they will come out in the same shape as they did going in.  I make a heaping tablespoon for each cookie, then try to shape it in a circle and lightly pat down the tops.
  • Storage:  Store these macaroons in an air-tight container.
  • Freezing:  Coconut Macaroons freeze well for up to 3 months or so.

    My favorite Jewish cookbook was at our ski house and I had volunteered to bake for a friend’s daughter’s bat mitzvah. I figured I would give this recipe a try, and boy was it worth the risk! As I was mixing in the coconut I feared the proportions might be a little off, but not even one tiny bit. They got crispy on the bottom, firm on top and oh so moist in the middle! Parchment paper a must. I used mini chocolate chips and added about 1/4 cup of almond meal. Truly delicious!

    Woo hoo! Thanks for this recipe — I had a bag of sweetened coconut on hand and wanted to make chocolate chip macaroons for Passover (and let’s be honest, because I was craving them!). I found your site by Googling and rejecting a bunch of other recipes that called for ingredients I didn’t have on hand. Winner winner! They were fast, easy, and delicious. I’m going to have a hard time resisting the temptation to eat them all immediately.
