This recipe was a favorite of my sister and I. We loved it when my mom would make these. When we were old enough to cook, the house always smelled like chocolate macaroons. I think we made this recipe about a couple of times a week. They are very easy to make and super yummy to eat! Another thing I like about this recipe is that you don’t use a lot of dishes, so clean-up is a breeze as well. These cookies are great if you are in a pinch and need to make something delicious in a hurry. Another great thing is the ingredient list is very short and most things I’m sure you will be able to find in your very own kitchen.
I hope you enjoy making these macaroons as much as I know you will enjoy eating them.
What you need to make the macaroons:
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
6 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup fine shredded coconut
3 cups oatmeal
1-2 cookie sheets waxed paper
1. Combine the first four ingredients together in a large pot and bring to a boil for about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
2. Take pot off of stove and add the coconut and oatmeal. Mix until everything is coated.
3. Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet by heaping tablespoon-fulls. To have these cookies ready quickly, cool in refrigerator, or leave and let cool to room temp.
Note: You may need to double batch these cookies as they will disappear fast!!!!
