Christmas Treats are some of my favorite fun foods to create in the kitchen. Cute treats like this Rice Krispies Treats snowmen, these simple chocolate-covered pretzel Christmas trees, or chocolate-covered snowman cookies.

Macaroons are usually pretty delicious by themselves, but these cuties have a little touch of chocolate wings and a soft peppermint head. It’s like a little bite of Christmas heaven. 

Making Coconut Macaroons in the kitchen with Jim Carry’s The Christmas Carol on in the next room is a lot of fun. It really gets me in the Christmas Spirit.

My husband even reminisced about his mother making macaroons every Christmas. Even so, these cuties are getting packed away for the Christmas Party. 🙂 I’ll have to make another batch for him and his mom to enjoy, later.

Equipment

  • parchment paper lined baking sheet

Ingredients

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1&1/2 tbsp. flour
  • tsp. salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1&1/2 tsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2&1/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
  • 12 soft peppermint round candy
  • 24 white chocolate melts

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
  • In a large bowl combine the sugar, flour, salt, egg whites, honey and extract
  • Whisk until well mixed
  • Gradually add the coconut while whisking some more, making sure the coconut is completely coated with wet mixture
  • Grab your baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and divide the coconut mixture evenly into 12 mounds
  • Wet your hands, and push the mounds up into cone shapes
  • Bake the macaroons for about 15-20 minutes
  • Allow the macaroons to cool slightly, but while they are still warm and flexible pull the top apart enough to rest a peppermint round on it’s side
  • Gently push the chocolate rounds into the sides as wings
  • If the macaroons have cooled too much they won’t be as easy to work with, just pop them into the oven for a few seconds to warm again

Notes

  • *Working while the macaroon is still warm will slowly melt the part of chocolate you have pushed into the macaroon. Don’t worry, the rest will stay firm, and as the melted chocolate hardens it will glue itself to the angel. 🙂
