Mrs. Goldstein's Chocolate Pecan Macaroons—We Share the Secret Recipe With You

Mom may not know everything about fashion, but she usually knows a thing or two about cooking. And if you’re lucky, you can snag a hard copy of that stained recipe card and learn to make it yourself. That’s why I sent my staffer Jackie on a mission to get her best friend’s mom’s secret Chocolate Pecan Macaroon recipe after she kept talking about how great they were. Well, they ARE! Chewy, chocolate-y, coconut-y and sweet: The perfect treat for the end of a Passover (or any) meal.

Mrs. Goldstein's Chocolate Pecan Macaroons

Ingredients

  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 c sweetened flake coconut
  • 1½ c chopped pecans
  • nonstick cooking spray, to grease pan

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the meantime, melt the chocolate in a nonreactive bowl in the microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring after each, until fully melted.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, and then add the chocolate, pecans and coconut. Mix until everything is incorporated and then drop by the tablespoon onto a baking sheet lightly greased with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. They will be soft when you remove them but will harden as they cool.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
