Macaroon Kiss Cookies . . . soft and chewy coconut macaroons made even better with the addition of a Hershey kiss. An easy cookie recipe for coconut fans!


Coconut Macaroon Kiss Cookies

Coconut is one of those things that people either love or hate. I happen to be a coconut fan. Especially toasted coconut – I could eat that stuff by the spoonful!

I love a good coconut macaroon, and those toasty bits of coconut on the edges are my favorite part.

Of course the only thing better than coconut is coconut and chocolate together. I’ve made dipped coconut macaroons, but I wanted something that was even more simple to make.

I thought of my peanut butter kiss cookies, and just knew I had to try the same technique with macaroons. Worked like a charm!

Macaroon kiss cookies are so easy to make. You don’t even need a mixer. Just stir the ingredients together in a mixing bowl, or even use your hands. That’s what I do.

To make the cookies all a uniform size so that they bake evenly, I like to use a cookie scoop. Macaroons can be pretty sticky, so I always line my pans with a silicone liner. You can use parchment paper instead if you prefer.

While the cookies are baking, you want to unwrap your Hershey kisses. As soon as you take the macaroons out of the oven, push a kiss into the center of each one. Then all you have to do is wait for them to cool. That’s the hard part. 😉

If you love coconut like I do, you will be happy to hear that today is National Macaroon Day. I’m teaming up with my Celebrating Food Bloggers to bring you 15 fabulous macaroon recipes. Enjoy!

    Do you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut?

      I usually use sweetened coconut because that’s what I have on hand, but it’s just a matter of preference. Unsweetened will also work, the cookies will just be a little less sweet. But some people might like them better that way. 🙂
