Chocolate Coconut Chewy Macaroons (just like Neilsons)

Neilsons Chocolate MacaroonsIf I was to binge on commercial candy, I would choose Nielson's chocolate macaroons.

Oh my word the crunch, the Chocolate, the yum!

Honestly, I could never not eat the whole box and then want another.

That’s how much I used to LOVE these babies!

I couldn’t find the ingredients anywhere online, so I had to create this recipe from memory.

If fact, a lot of places online say that this product is discontinued and it isn’t listed on the Neilson website.

Although my version is a much darker chocolate version, I think you will appreciate the resemblance to the taste and texture of the Neilson recipe.

And of course, mine has no crappy refined oils or sugar to speak of : ) macaroons-2

If you want to boost your metabolism, use coconut oil instead of butter (in conjunction with a low carb diet)!

What you will need:

1 cup coconut oil or butter (I used butter in the photos)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup ground almonds 
1/2 cup of ground desiccated (shredded) coconut
1/2 cup of desiccated (shredded) coconut
8 Tbsp granulated erythritol (for crunchiness) 

macaroons-1How to do it:

Step 1: Begin to melt the butter/coconut oil on medium heat.
Step 2: Ground 1/2 cup almonds.
Step 3: Ground 1/2 cup desiccated (shredded) coconut (remember to leave the other 1/2 cup desiccated coconut unground to get the correct texture.
Step 4: Put all ingredients in the melting butter and stir with a fork until everything is blended.
Step 4: Scoop into a mold or refrigerate until you can form into balls or if you have cake decorating equipment, you could actually create the macaroon shape.
Step 5: Store in the fridge.

What do you think Neilson macaroon lovers!? Does it make the cut?
