Coconut Macaroon Mix in a Jar Recipe
1 to 2 pkg. flaked sweetened coconut*
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 paper napkin or folded paper towel
* enough to fill jar after adding other ingredients
Using a one-quart wide mouth-canning jar, place the napkin or paper towel in the
bottom of the jar and then place the can of sweetened, condensed milk on top of
the napkin/towel. Pack coconut around and on top of milk until jar is full.
Attach these instructions to the jar:
Pour coconut into a medium-size mixing bowl, then pour sweetened, condensed milk
over coconut. Before stirring, add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to top of mixture.
Stir well, cover and place in refrigerator for one hour.
Preheat oven to 350° F. and line cookie sheet with parchment.
Form macaroons using a cookie scoop or buttered hands. Place onto cookie sheet 2
inches apart, and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately
remove from parchment to cooling racks or macaroons will become
permanently attached to parchment.
Yield: 2 dozen macaroons
Drizzle macaroons with melted chocolate after they are cooled.
Using muffin tins that have been prepared with non-stick cooking spray, mold
dough around sides of each muffin tin to form a small shell. Bake until lightly
browned, cool, then fill with your choice of filling.
