Polka Dot Macaroons are quick and easy to make, a coconut lover’s dream! The mini candies are just the perfect size. However, I think it would be fun to use the red and green regular sized M&Ms for a festive Christmas cookie. I made a couple of attempts toward that. I actually bought the Christmas colors. And not once, but twice, they completely vanished before I got the cookies made. And it was my fault. Because I opened the package. Since when is that carte blanche for kitchen passersby to abscond with the goods and eat the whole thing???? Oh – back to the recipe. Make. Bake. Eat. 🙂 It’s that easy!
- 5 cups flaked coconut
- 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- ½ cup flour
- 1 cup M&M minis
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- In a large bowl, combine coconut and flour.
- Add milk and mix well.
- Stir in M&Ms.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart on parchment lined or greased baking sheets.
- Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
- Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
