Coconut was such a huge part of Bedstemor's baking, and she would often make these for all of her grandchildren.


250g sugar

250g desiccated coconut

4 egg whites

100g dark chocolate


These are easy, quick and fun to make. First preheat the oven to 160c / 325f and line two baking trays with baking parchment.

Mix the sugar and coconut together in a bowl. Beat the egg whites until stiff, you can do this by hand if you fancy the work out, or use a beater.

Once the egg whites are stiff, add the sugar and coconut. Using a small spoon, place dollops of the coconut mixture on the tray.

Bake for 10 minutes, and leave on the trays for 5 minutes and then remove to cool completely on racks.

Melt the dark chocolate, and once melted pour into a shallow bowl so that you can dip the coloured macaroons in or pour over with the aid of the back of a spoon.

These are lovely on their own but also great with ice cream.
