Mocha Coconut Macaroons
Hi Everyone, okay, so remember my beloved Coconut Macaroons? I was making them so much I started to make changes to the recipe and one of those changes ended up being these lovely Mocha Coconut Macaroons that can easily be just Chocolate Coconut Macaroons too!
I love how chewy these cookies are and anything coconut is just bliss for me.
The espresso powder definitely gives the chocolate flavor a boost. I linked to my new favorite espresso powder that I ordered recently on Amazon.com in the recipe card below.
I used a medium OXO cookie scoop to get perfect mounds of cookie dough. This will give you a perfect domed shape for the cookies.
I linked to all the tools that I use for this recipe in the recipe card below.

- 14 ounces sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon espresso powder
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I prefer organic or homemade)
- 2 large egg whites, should be room temperature (the eggs are easier to crack when cold)
- 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 10 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers (I prefer Ghirardelli Chocolate)
- sea salt crystals (I prefer Mediterranean Cyprus sea salt)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and gather your ingredients.
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, add coconut flakes, condensed milk, cocoa powder, espresso powder, vanilla extract and stir to combine.
- In a medium mixing bowl, add egg whites and kosher salt. Whip egg whites and the 1/4 tsp Kosher salt on high speed until they are medium to firm.
- Gently fold the egg whites into the coconut flake mixture until combined.
- Using a medium cookie school (1 1/2 teaspoon), scoop the mixture onto a prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden (30 minutes works for us if they are made medium size using a medium size cookie scoop.)
- Allow to cool on a wire cooling rack until completely cool.
- Optional: Melt dark chocolate melting wafers in the microwave at 30 second intervals until fully melted, stirring in between.
- Dip the cookies in the dark chocolate and allow to cool on a baking sheet covered with wax paper. Sprinkle with sea salt crystals. Put in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
