Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons

Everything in one bowl…stir… bake… no mixer… and only five ingredients. That’s why I love this easy recipe. For the chocolate, I use a 3-ounce bar of 62 to 72% sweet dark chocolate. Recipe can be doubled or tripled. These are showstoppers! - Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Makes: 16 cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons


  • 7 ounce bag sweetened flaked coconut (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour (all purpose or gluten free)

  • 3 ounces sweet dark chocolate, melted.


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Put coconut, egg whites, sugar, and flour in a bowl. Combine using 2 forks.
  4. Shape into mounds on baking sheet.
  5. Bake about 20 minutes, until edges are golden.
  6. Melt chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave (or in a double boiler). Cool cookies slightly and dip each one into warm, melted chocolate and roll to coat edges (or spoon chocolate onto one side of the tops). Place on wax paper to cool.

Note: To make coconut-almond macaroons, just add 2-3 tablespoons of ground toasted almonds.

    Hello Jenny,
    I am excited to try these Macaroons. I was wondering if we can make a batch and freeze them.? Thanks

    I didn’t have 2 Lemons for the lemon brownie recipe so I substituted with and Orange. Turned out well but next time I want to make it with Lemons a bit more tastey

    I made these coconut macaroons Tuesday for a meeting at church. Everyone loved them! Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipes.

    Jenny is the best. My macaroons came out perfect.

    This recipe turns out great every time!!! Just made a batch for a Christmas tea. Drizzled the chocolate over the top and they look lovely. I know they are delicious because I sampled one…or maybe two. ?. Thank you, Jenny!

    Thank you, thank you, and again thank you Jenny! I needed something quick and easy and had all ingredients on hand! Turned out a hit and i’m not even a desserts type of person. So many people asked me for the recipe which was the best compliment ever.

  7. Tricia

    Thank you for the recipe! I wanted to make a dessert, but in the house I had almost no butter or brown sugar, and only 1 egg. I made a half-batch of these cookies, and they are amazing! They are so simple and quick to make! We loved them so I will definitely make them again.

  8. Linda

    I made the macaroons for my sister-in-law, who loves coconut. Oh my goodness–these are wonderful! Thank you for such an easy but amazing recipe.

    Quick question… How well do these keep? I want to make these for a lunch reception Aug 21st. Can I make it 2 or 3 days in advance? I live in Toronto

    • Jenny

      I find that they keep very well but I tend to refrigerate almost everything after the second day.

    This is a note for me, that I wrote on the Canadian bag of shredded coconut, which I have since thrown out. I use 2- 2/3 cups for this recipe. My bag was a 1 kg. bag. Confusing at the start.
    Maybe it’ll help with the amount, for a fellow Cannuck.

  11. Nadia

    The recipe worked well and they turned out fantastic!
    If you don’t have sweetened coconut then go to this website:
    That’s what i did and mine turned out so good and everyone loved them!

  13. Maria

    Thank you so much for the recipe but the chocolate have to be sweet or unsweetened.

    • Jenny

      It’s sweetened chocolate but I’m glad you asked because I needed to clarify the recipe, which I just did. The one I use is called semi-sweet.

  14. Zoey
