Salted chocolate dipped coconut macaroons

Salted chocolate coconut macaroons

These chocolatey, chewy, light as a feather thingumabobs are a joy to make, as they are so easy and rather fun too. Everyone made classic macaroons at school, but I hadn’t made them for years. Just by dipping them into salted chocolate I have elevated them into something kinda special. It’s like, you could totally serve these up at a little get together. Especially if you made them all teeny weany and served them with coffee.

With half-term coming up they are a great bake to make with kids – skip the chocolate dipping bit if you can’t be bothered. I won’t judge.
