Coconut Macaroon Recipe
This coconut macaroon recipe takes less than ten minutes to put together and just a dozen minutes to bake. The coconut gives them a wonderful chewy finish which makes them extra satisfying. Truly the perfect treat to whip up anytime you need a sweet little nosh.
In French, this coconut macaroon recipe goes by the name of rochers coco or coconut rocks, which is reference in to the way they look and not their weight. They are perfect two-bite-sized treats that take next to no time to make and are equally delicious warm from the oven or the next day.
Just to expand your French vocabulary a bit more, you can also call these treats les congolais. A rocher coco and a congolais are the same cookie.
In France, they are typically shaped into pyramids. This gives a lot of nice edges where the coconut turns golden brown and crunchy. No time for pyramids? No worries. Just form balls and the cookies will still be yummy.
The chocolate topping (or bottoming) is completely optional on these. We prefer them without, which is testament to just how good this coconut macaroon recipe tastes.
