To Die for Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Macaroons from Domino Magazine

DSC_0030.JPG

Oh. My. Goodness. You have not lived until you have tasted a warm macaroon fresh from the oven. I know this because until Friday, I had not lived. Can you believe I had made it through over twenty years of cookie baking obsession and had never made coconut macaroons? I think this oversight was the result of 1) my mother’s hatred of the macaroon—the result of many a 1960’s bake sale disaster wreaked by her mother—and 2) my own childhood encounters with countless dull, dense hockey pucks masquerading as macaroons. But I know now that those impostors of snacktimes past were not macaroons. These are macaroons, and what’s more, they are absolute heaven; angels floating on clouds while fluttering their feathered wings are jealous of these cookies.

I happened across this recipe when Domino posted it to their Twitter stream. These cookies are ridiculously easy to make—they require barely any ingredients and can be mixed, scooped, baked and dipped in under an hour. They’re also amazing without the chocolate coating—the little nuggets of coconutty goodness simply melt on your tongue. I even shared the batch with my husband’s colleagues after realizing how dangerous it would be to keep them in the house, and the cookies were declared ‘the best macaroons ever’. I won’t post the recipe because you can click through and get it here. But let me say one final word: if you only make one batch of cookies this year, let it be these.

P.S. Speaking of Twitter, come say hi to me!

    I posted a dessert today as well … espresso brownies, which are also incredibly easy to make. Isn’t it funny how, sometimes, the simplest recipes are the best? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for introducing me to the macaroon. I’ve put them on my list of ‘must try’ desserts.

    Looks delicious! I’ve got a babyshower next week, I might try out the recipe.

    Whenever you post about something you’ve baked, your photos are amazing. The food seems to leap off the ‘page’ and makes me want to eat it immediately. Your photography is so good!

  4. Mary Jo Says:

    Now I’m convinced you are trying to kill me…with chocolate and coconut. I will be thinking about this all morning as I swing by Starbucks on my way into LA and wish I were nibbling on one of these instead…sigh.

    These I will definitely try, thanks!

  2. Luphia Says:

    look at these! i’m drooling all over the screens right now! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. blair Says:

    Macaroons are hands down my favorite cookie (and I don’t usually like coconut!) and I can only imagine is they were dipped in chocolate. You make it sound so easy! Also, is it bad that I just heard about twitter last week when I was at a fundraiser seminar and we were talking about young donors. I thought I was pretty savvy but apparently not!

  4. christina Says:

    That’s absolutely the last thing I need. I spent all weekend making (and eating) desserts. But how can I resist with your description? These will definitely be the next cookies I make.

  5. callie grayson Says:

    mmmmm
    and mmmmmmm, yummy! I love chocolate and coconut together.

    hi, girly! i have not been doing much blogging latelyโ€”my own or visiting others. i am taking a short break. but i wanted to stop by and say hi! i miss my daily dose of City Sage when i don’t stop by for a while.
    your blog will always be inspiring to me, even when i’m not on my own. i’ll still be stopping by yours from time to time.
    hope you are well!

    Seriously, this is such an amazing recipe. Leave it to Domino to tempt me once again. Great find. Are macaroons not the most fabulous of cookies? Yum!

  8. Kristin @ Contented Me Says:

    I have to try these! Anything dipped in chocolate is worth it… and I LOVE macaroons!
