No-Bake Chocolate Macaroons

Marrying Nathan 4 years ago also meant adopting this recipe into my pink recipe binder. This is his absolute favourite cookie ever (are we sensing a common theme??)

Super simple No-Bake Chocolate Macaroons.

When I made these for the first time, my mother in law, Jenn, asked me how they tasted & they were only okay…We altered a few ingredients & thankfully when I make these now, they are a HUGE hit. I hope you love them too!! Keep in mind- you have to keep these in your fridge so they stay firm. They’re the best cold anyway.

You start by adding butter, evaporated milk, brown sugar, and cocoa to a medium sized pot on the stove.

Heat on medium until it boils, then remove from heat.

Meanwhile, mix together quick oats & unsweetened shredded coconut in a large mixing bowl.

Once wet mixture has boiled, pour it into the dry mixing bowl.

Mix until all the oatmeal/coconut is sticky and covered. Then form balls however big or small you want. Place them on parchment paper and then refrigerate.

These are best served cold. Enjoy!
