Salted Caramel Coconut Macaroons


I freaking love coconut. I really do. And I love macaroons. Put them together with some homemade salted caramel and bam! These are perfectly sweet, chewy and oh so satisfying, And only a few ingredients needed. You'll be addicted and you'll want to make these all the time!


Here's how to make them:


Ingredients


  • 5 1/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes

  • 2/3 cup flour

  • 1 - 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

  • 2 TSP vanilla extract (the darker the vanilla, the better. I like to use madagascar vanilla)

  • 1/4 TSP salt


Instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and move your oven rack to the 3rd to last rack.

  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (you may need 2 baking sheets, but I used one)

  3. In a large bowl, stir the coconut, flour and salt until well mixed.

  4. Stir in the condensed milk and vanilla until blended together.

  5. Use a cookie scoop or your hands (it may be sticky) to make 2-3 inch balls and place them on the pans. Be careful not to have them too close together.

  6. Make a small indentation in the middle using your thumb (this is where the caramel will go later).

  7. Bake about 15-17 minutes, until the bottom is golden brown and the coconut is toasted.

  8. Cool in pans for 5 minutes. You may need to make the indentation again but you can use the bottom of a small spoon.

  9. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

  10. Add the caramel to the centers (check out my recipe for salted caramel!) and enjoy!
