Mango Coconut Macaroons

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 macaroons

Equipment

  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • 1 Small mixing bowl

Ingredients

Macaroon Mix

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 20 drops Hedessent Mango Flavour
  • 20 drops Hedessent Coconut Flavour
  • 15 drops Hedessent Tahitian Bean Flavour

Chocolate Coating

  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 15 drops Hedessent Mango Flavour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, beat egg white on medium speed until medium peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in the coconut, followed by condensed milk, salt, Coconut, Mango, and Tahitian Bean Flavours, just until combined.
  • Drop 2 tbsp of mixture 1-inch apart onto the prepared pan. Using fingers, gently shape into peaked mounds. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 16 minutes. Let cool completely on pan, about 15 minutes.
  • Chocolate Coating: Place chocolate in a bowl set over a small saucepan with 1-inch simmering (not boiling) water and melt, stirring every so often. Remove bowl from heat and stir in coconut oil.
  • Dip macaroons in chocolate to coat base and edges; return to parchment. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 15 minutes.

Notes

Pro Tip: Adding coconut oil to chocolate achieves a shiny lustre and helps the chocolate to harden or temper. Don’t forget to refrigerate to solidify faster.
Refrigerate dipped macaroons for up to 4 days in a sealed container.

About Soo Kim

Soo was raised in a traditional Korean household, on homemade kimchi and by parents who valued real food and honest ingredients. Some of her earliest memories revolve around time spent with her mother cooking, helping to stock their family store with authentic Korean fare in an area that had no similar options, and thus began Soo’s love affair with food.

She began her culinary journey at George Brown Culinary School, in Toronto, Canada, leading to a whirlwind circus work experience in Vancouver, BC, Dublin, Ireland, London, England, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Russia, San Francisco, and finally back to Toronto. She transitioned to the editorial magazine world of test kitchens, running the food sections of Chatelaine and Canadian Living. She cut her professional teeth at Loblaws test kitchen, Canada’s most extensive grocery chain, learning about product development.

Before landing at Hedessent, Soo was a freelance recipe developer, writer, and stylist, contributing to Loblaws, Sobeys, Walmart, CBC, Food & Drink, and Clean Eating, among other leading brands and publications. When she’s not busy testing flavours and building new recipes for our customers to enjoy, she enjoys her time in Toronto with her husband and son, where they routinely obsess over great fried rice and making the perfect French fries.
