What is the Difference Between a Macaroon and Macaron?
Let’s talk about the difference between a macaroon and a macaron so there is no confusion. Macaroons are made with coconut and macarons are a soft meringue based French cookie. Macarons are sandwich cookies and come in a variety of colors. The cookies are both delicious, in my opinion, but VERY different. The macaroons we are talking about today are coconut cookies and MUCH easier to make than macarons, which can be a little tricky.
Best Coconut Macaroons
To make these magical coconut macaroons, you need salted caramel sauce. I promise our recipe is easy to make, so don’t start sweating. Just do it. It’s the BEST salted caramel recipe. But if you have to cheat and use store bought, that is fine too:)
Our traditional coconut macaroon recipe uses all sweetened condensed milk. For these macaroons, I used half sweetened condensed milk and half salted caramel sauce. Best decision ever. The salted caramel sauce is amazing! I also added in toffee bits because I love caramel and toffee together.
I was going to stop there, but when the macaroons were cooling I decided to go all out and dip the bottoms in chocolate. Another great decision on my part. I used to think I was a bad decision maker, but these macaroons are proving me wrong. I can make decisions and darn good ones too:)

Do Coconut Macaroons Need to Be Refrigerated?
If you are going to eat the coconut macaroons on the first or second day, you can store them in an airtight container on the counter. If it is hot or humid, I would store them in the fridge so the chocolate doesn’t melt. And if you plan on keeping them for longer than a day or two, I would keep them in the refrigerator. You can also freeze coconut macaroons for up to 2 months.
