Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons.

While these are not your French Macaroons that have become all the rage. I think these Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons are equally to die for; especially if you like the combination of coconut and chocolate. I make these cookies every spring, but this year I tried a new recipe that uses condensed milk instead of sugar, and has you whip the egg whites, and by doing this the cookies come out especially moist. The recipe comes from Ina Garten of the Barefoot Contessa. The chocolate chips are my addition because as you know I love chocolate. To all my Cornerview friends- Happy Anniversary! I have had so much fun reading your blogs and seeing what you come up with each week. To read more Cornerviews head over to Jane at Spain Daily.

What a yummy temptation! They sound easy to make. I love chocolate too, so I'd definitely add the chocolate chips.

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog! I should try those chocolate chips, but I'm not very big on baking.. I wish I were, though. I love to travel too, and hopefully there will be more of it once the children are getting bigger.

yummmmm! could there be anything better than coconut and chocolate? oh, and the condensed milk doesn't hurt either.

re: agave nectar

you can substitute it in recipes for sugar. for each cup of sugar called for in a recipe, you will use 2/3 c. of agave. it doesn't have the same flavor at all that honey has. you'll have to taste it for yourself to see, but the taste is very pleasant.

it is great, for instance, in iced tea or coffee, etc because it dissolves easily. it works well in most recipes but does sometimes change the texture of baked goods.

because it has lower on the glycemic index, it is considered a much more healthful sweetener for your body.

the thing is, though, it IS expensive and comes from mexico (from cacti). i prefer to use local honey- also expensive but at least not shipped all the way from another country.

Those look WAY too good and tempting. I just made some Oatmeal Choc Chip cookies and I ate more dough than cookies.
These look DELICIOUS! If I had some right now, I'd have to eat them all. ;)
