How to make Easter Macaroons

Easter is coming and I have so many sweet plans for the celebration! I’m starting off with my oh-so-cute and oh-so-easy Easter Macaroons.

For the macaroon/base portion of this recipe, all it takes is two ingredients: shredded coconut and condensed milk. Yes! It really is that simple.

What I love about this recipe is that you can totally get creative and use your imagination! For the sweet centre, I opted for yellow candy melts. However, you can use any colour you wish! For the Easter Macaroons, I recommend sticking with a pastel theme, to stay true to the holiday’s colour-scheme.

Ingredients

  • 3.5 cups shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup condensed milk
  • Parchment paper
  • Muffin pan
  • ½ cup yellow candy melts
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 36 candy eggs

Yields: One dozen decorated macaroons

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Cut your parchment paper to 12 squares, about 3x3in in-size. Line your each cavity of muffin pan with your square parchment pieces and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together coconut and condensed milk.
  3. Using two spoons, scoop coconut mixture into each lined muffin section, filling it up about 2/3 of the way. Use the back of your spoon to create an indent in the center of each unbaked macaroon.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, you’ll want the edges to be brown.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cutting board. In the meantime, place candy melts and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 20-second intervals until completely melted.
  6. Pour melted candy into the center of each macaroon. Top each one with 3 candy eggs and allow to set. Serve and enjoy!
