Macaroons are a light, airy biscuit. Coconut macaroons are actually quite simple to make at home. As a coconut lover, this is one of my favourite. Chewy and moist on the inside, crispy and golden on the outside, its delicious. These cookies also keep well for days. Happy Snack for Kids. A batch of sweet macaroons can be yours in less than a half an hour. Once baked, these turn a lovely golden color with a delicately crunchy shell and a deep coconut flavour. The key ingredient in the recipe is sweetened condensed milk, Sweetened condensed milk is sticky-sweet and makes the best macaroons. A good coconut macaroon is an irresistible thing.
