Grain Free & Vegan
Two of my favorite things - coconut & dark chocolate - come together in these delicious little bites. And I think they make a perfect edible treat for those special loved ones in your life on Valentines Day!
They might look fancy, but making macaroons is easier than you think. Most traditional macaroon recipes use canned sweetened condensed milk and I'm just not a big fan since I can't control the ingredients used.
So we made a homemade version by cooking down full-fat coconut milk with some honey or agave. While it does take up to 45 minutes to make, it is SUPER SIMPLE! Just pour your coconut milk into a small saucepan and bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and add the honey or agave. You will continue to simmer for 30-45 minutes or until it is reduced by half. Let the milk cool completely before using it in the macaroon recipe. You can also store the sweetened condensed milk in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
