Mini Coconut Macaroons
Hi Everyone, coconut macaroons are one of my favorite cookies to make during the holidays because you can make a bunch of them, gift them to people, use them for cookie swaps and bake sales.
Everyone loves them and they are so delicious to snack on. They can be made for any season because they use shelf-stable pantry ingredients like sweetened coconut flakes and sweetened condensed milk.
This Mini Coconut Macaroons recipe is based on our Coconut Macaroons recipe here on the blog.
Also, make sure to check out our Mocha Coconut Macaroons recipe too for a chocolate-y twist.

- 14 ounces sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
