Lemon and Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons.

I absolutely adore macroons and this is a great twist on your plain ones. The lemon is subtle, yet delicious and the dark chocolate drizzled on top complements it really well. I was so surprised how quick these are to make, they're great for a snack!


2 egg whites
80g desiccated coconut
1tsp cornflour
50g caster sugar
1tbsp lemon juice
40g dark chocolate.


1. Preheat the oven to 180ยบ.
2. Beat the egg whites until light and fluffy but not stiff.
3. Fold in the desiccated coconut, cornflour, caster sugar and lemon juice into the beaten egg white.
4. Use a tablespoon to make mounds of the mixture on a greased and lined baking tray, making sure they are well spread out.
5. Bake for 25 minutes or until light golden.
6. Whilst they are cooling, melt your dark chocolate.
7. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the macaroons.
An alternative to drizzling the chocolate over, you could dip half of it in the melted chocolate such as these...

This makes 12 average-sized macaroons. Enjoy!
