A twist on little coconut macaroons!
T.G.F.F.M.! Thank God For Friday Macaroons!
Today, I’m sharing the recipe for my Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Coconut Macaroons as featured in my stop motion short, A Love Story! If you didn’t get to see it, you can check A Love Story out below! I really had so much fun making it, and the behind-the-scenes look at its creation is coming soon. I have a long, five-day weekend this coming weekend so hopefully I’ll have a chance to take a break from computer science and put together the behind-the-scenes footage I have!
Ok, so back to these macaroons. Honestly, the inspiration to include macaroons in the stop motion short was that I figured petite, round cookies would be the perfect cute little cookie to star in an animation. I mean, they definitely taste just as good as they look 🙂 Also, they are a play-on the traditional chocolate-covered strawberries – but made ten times better in cookie form.
Basically, these are the amped up, strawberry version of the Coconut Macaroons I made almost a couple years back! Wow, I still can’t believe it’s already been a couple of years. Time really does fly when you’re making macaroons…

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Coconut Macaroons.
- 3 cups fresh strawberries
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup white, granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 6 cups sweetened, shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Purée strawberries in a blender. Set aside.
Whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract. Fold in strawberry purée until well combined. Fold in coconut and flour. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop about 1 tablespoon of batter onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for each cookie. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly golden brown and inside has set.
Allow to cool completely; then dip and drizzle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes or until chocolate has completely set before serving. DEVOUR!
