After looking at pimipmysnack.com and alot of time considering what to make (3 weeks) we decided to make a coconut macaroon! Full of coconutty tasty goodness.
All we needed was....
13 bags of shredded coconut
4 cans of condensed Milk
A bottle of Vanilla essence and a bar of cooking chocolate.
All costing £12.69
After visiting Somerfields AND NOT FINDING ANY COCONUT MACAROONS we found that maybe coconut macaroons we found that they are not very popular. So our quest to make a bigger one had an even bigger point to it. To tell the world about them and share the goodness. We bought every ounce of shredded coconut that Somerfields had on the shelves (65 ounces), and collected the other things we needed. A good hard look was needed to find the condensed milk. Somerfields should clearly state where their condensed milk is placed. We eventually arrived at the checkout where we were greeted by a ginger teenage checkout girl who mocked us for our excessive amounts of coconut we were buying.
By now it was 5.15pm and we seperated and arranged to meet at 9pm with chinese, and whilst eating this we watched Big Brother.
At 9.20pm we swiftly got to work with mixing 3 bags of shredded coconut to 1 can of condensed milk, and 2 table spoons of vanilla essence, this we repeated 4 times.
We would like to add that Manda didn't have a round tray big enough for the size macaroon we wanted to make. So we used a rectangular roasting tray!
Which we greased, and turned the oven on fan assisted oven at 300 degrees. After greasing we added all the coconut mix into the tray a bowl at a time, and got compressing!
When we couldn't find any coconut macaroons at Somerfields we decided to make a normal size macaroon to show the standard size of one. We named her Little Mac. She was a pretty one.
After our BARE amounts of compressing and getting a tad carried away we put it into the pre heated oven at this time...
