For some reason I tend to believe that I have all the time in the world… so I sign up for things, I say yes to things…then, when said thing is due I’m struggling to make sure it’s ready. Well, about a month ago I signed up to a cookie exchange at my work. We need 1 dozen cookies/sweets for each person taking part. There are 7 names on that list – so I need 6 dozen cookies.
When I signed up I had lots of time…Christmas was still a month away and I had beautifully hand written lists of what needed to be done between now and then… well, those lists are far from beautiful now and I still have SO MUCH TO DO! Not only do I need to bake, but I still have so much shopping left to do! I’m in a bit of a tizzy right now, that is for certain.
But what must get done right now are 6 dozen Chocolate Cherry Macaroons.
I am so grateful for tried and true recipes. I knew that when I went to the Kraft Canada website I would find a recipe that suited my needs. And that’s exactly what I found… Chocolate Chunk Macaroons!
FYI – I modified the Chocolate Chunk Macaroon – I omitted the nuts and replaced them with cherries… because I LOVE CHERRIES!
Here’s the best part – you only need one batch! (Ok – maybe the best part is that they’re delicious…but a very close second is that you ONLY NEED ONE BATCH!) I got about 80 (small) macaroons out of the recipe. 80! And from start to finish it only took about 20 minutes – that included bake time.
- 4.5 Cups Sweetened Shredded Coconut
- 1/3 Cup Flour
- 1 Can (300 mL) Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 Cup chopped Marichino Cherries
- 3/4 PKG Bakers Semi Sweet Chocolate
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Combine coconut, chocolate, cherries and flour in large bowl. Add milk and mix well.
Drop tablespoonfuls of coconut mixture, 2 inches apart, into 60 mounds on parchment-covered baking sheets.
