Kosher for Passover Coconut Macaroons

Why are the simplest recipes the best?
Sometimes the best,I mean…like when you are lazy.
Simple recipes ROCK, then.
Take these Coconut Macaroons for example:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 packages sweetened, shredded coconut
1 package slivered almonds
About 1/2 a bag of milk or semi sweet chocolate chips(I prefer semi sweet, since there is a lot of sugar in here already)
Pinch of salt (optional)
1)Dump all the dry ingredients in a bowl
 2)Add the sweetened condensed milk. Be sure to get every last gooey, sweet, creamy bit out of the can with a spatula. 
Then lick the spatula.
Because there are starving kids out there…or just because it tastes good. Whatevs.
 Taste a little now. If you feel so inclined, add a pinch of salt to the batter. This REALLY brings it to the next level.
4)Drop in little circles on a tinfoiled cookie sheet. Be sure to spray the foil with Pam or some other nonstick spray. Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. You will be able to smell when they are done.
And this is what they look like.
Crispy on the outside, molten and gooey on the inside, this is like a perfect chocolate chip cookie with the glorious taste of tropical, rich coconut throughout. No flour or eggs here because…they aren’t needed! They would just take away from the pure, decadent sweetness of these cookies. The bitterness of the semi-sweet chips and the savory nuttiness of the almonds contrasts so well with the coconut and that sugary, creamy sweetened condensed milk. The best parts of the cookies are the slightly burned parts, where the milk has caramelized to a dark, nutty, delightfully crunch brown, straddling the line between sweet and burnt.
But it is sweet.
And that’s what you call a simple recipe.
And it really is the best.
And…notice the title…kosher for Passover.


  1. I so hope I can coordinate Passover with you before heading to MA for Easter.


  2. Fritos and Foie Gras says:

    @Sarah-omg, I hope so too!!!

  3. Caden has never had macaroons, and I've been telling him for the longest time I'm going to drop some knowledge soon. And now I can! You da best.

  4. Fritos and Foie Gras says:

    @Sarah-aren't they the best! and so EASY! And like I said, chica…YOU da best!!

  5. I think I'm going to try these this week…test the recipe out before Passover 🙂

  6. Ok, made them tonight, and they all totally stuck to the foil! And I Pam'd it and everything! What am I doing wrong? Is it because I used fat free sweetened condensed milk (writing that sentence makes me feel slightly ashamed)? They are easier to peel off once they're 100% cooled, but they are still pretty sticky. Help!
