Ingredients

  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 14 oz sweetened shredded coconut
  • 36 Hershey Kisses

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • Add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, almond extract and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Fold in shredded coconut.
  • Scoop out mixture and form into 1 inch balls. Use wet hands to shape balls, rinsing hands as needed.
  • Place on baking sheet. Using a small measuring spoon or the end of a wooden spoon, press down on the center of the balls to form a small well. It should be just large enough for the kisses later.
  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or just until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and immediately press the Hershey kiss into the top of each cookie and let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to a cooking rack to finish cooling.
  • Store at room temperature, loosely covered, for up to 1 week.

Notes

For a less "gooey" macaroon, omit up to 3 tablespoons of the sweetened condensed milk from the recipe. (Makes a great coffee creamer!)
