Ingredients

  • 1 can 300 ml sweetened condensed milk
  • pinch salt
  • zest of one large orange finely minced
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 1/2 - 6 cups sweetened coconut
  • 2 large egg whites

For dipping

  • 8 ounces good quality chocolate

Instructions

  1. Mix together the sweetened condensed milk, salt, orange zest and vanilla, then fold in the coconut.
  2. Whip the egg whites to soft peaks and then fold the coconut mixture gently through the beaten egg whites.
  3. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner. These WILL stick to a regular greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F just until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  5. Cool completely on the baking sheet before removing the cookies.
  6. In a double boiler over simmering water, melt 8 ounces good quality chocolate.
  7. Dip the bottoms of the baked macaroons in the melted chocolate and place them on parchment paper until the chocolate sets. Store in an airtight container.
