Coconut Pyramids

Just in time for Passover, Coconut Pyramids are easy and delicious treats that remind us of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt. These were originally introduced to me by a beloved family member when I visited her in England. She told me that she made them every Passover.  In order to recreate her recipe, I took my “Awesome Coconut Macaroons” and changed them into cute little pyramids!  These make a great Passover project with the kids, so have fun. They will also make a great dessert to bring to the Seder if you are a guest. Have a Happy Passover!

Ingredients:

3 egg whites, beaten until peaks form

1 Tbls. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

3 cups sweetened coconut

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 300° F; line baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. While egg whites are almost beaten, add sugar and vanilla and continue beating until peaks are formed. Do not over beat.
  3. Fold in coconut and mix; lightly spray a shot glass with cooking spray and fill the glass (approximately 2 Tbls.); invert glass on baking sheet releasing the coconut mound; wet fingers with a few drops of water and shape into a pyramid (triangular shape); bake 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool.

Tips:

  • Can be dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate. Melt ½ cup semi-sweet chips in microwave until melted on 75% power for 1 minute. When cool, take back of tablespoon, dip in chocolate and spread on bottom of pyramids; chill in refrigerator.
  • Can also drizzle with hazelnut spread; take 2 heaping teaspoons of hazelnut spread and place in bowl; add two tablespoons of water and stir until thinned. Should be consistency of melted chocolate. Place in Ziploc bag, pushing to lower corner; make a small cut at tip and then drizzle over macaroons by squeezing bag; chill in refrigerator.
  • Combine the two steps above, very delicious!!
