Chocolate Macaroon Tart
Our chocolate macaroon tart is easy to make and tasty. Better yet, it is made using only five ingredients: coconut flakes, flour, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chips. All of which you will probably have in your pantry and fridge. Don’t let the simplicity of the dish fool you, it is out of this world.
Like most recipes, there are alterations that can be made to the recipe. For starters, we use heavy cream, but if you are diet conscious, you can substitute half and half or milk.
To enhance the flavours more, vanilla or almond extract can be added. I do not think it is necessary and some people do not have it on hand, however.
This recipe uses sweetened coconut flakes but feet free to use unsweetened flakes if you wish. They are both available in most supermarkets or Asian stores.
Lastly the ingredients in this recipe fit nicely into a 6 inch tart pan. If you are going to use a bigger pan or a pie plate, it would be wise to triple the recipe.Video:
