Often people get confused with macarons vs macaroons. At first I was a bit confused too when I hear the names used interchangeably. I didn't know whether it was two completely different things, two things with the same name or people just getting the names wrong. But here is a easy recipe for some tasty macaroons.
Ingredients 2 cups dessicated coconut
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Mix the coconut, caster sugar, egg whites and chocolate chips in a bowl.
Roll teaspoonfuls of the mixture into small balls approximately 3 centimeters in diameter.
Place on a lined tray (or alternatively use a silicone mat).
Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden.
Allow the macaroons to cool before serving.
Do allow the macaroons to cool so that the shape holds, otherwise when just taken out of the oven it is still very fragile and breaks easily. Afterwards you will get a crunchy exterior and a soft and sweet interior.
