Coconut Macaroons

Remember coconut barfi... Well my mom used to make it, but I didn't try it till now. My 2nd grader learnt this at her school cooking class and has been insisting on making these. Reminded me of coconut barfi's... and the recipe she got was so simple... So made it this Diwali.

Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 30 min
Serves: About 20


1 package (14 oz) sweetened shredded coconut
1 can (14 oz) condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup pecans (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. Mix all the above ingredients well.
  3. Drop spoon fulls onto a greased or foiled baking tray.
  4. Bake till its slightly browned on top and edges. About 30 min
  5. Cool and enjoy. I observed that eating them the next day or so makes them better. Initially they are very sticky in the mouth with all the condensed milk but a day or two later they are perfect.
