Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Coco Rochers

Tuesdays with Dorie Greenspan Coco Rochers from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi was one of the simplest recipes I’ve made in a long time. It’s a macaroOn – so, coconut, egg white, sugar and vanilla, NOT the almond flour “one ‘o'” macarOn and takes no time to make (and even less time to eat!).

This recipe requires the coconut, egg white and sugar to be cooked over medium-low heat for about 7 minutes (until the mixture is hot), then refrigerated until cool. It’s pretty hands-off but you can’t mix up the dough and bake right away so make sure to plan for that “chill time”.

Dorie Greenspan Coco Rochers from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comOnce it’s chilled you can use a small cookie scoop to portion them out (I made 1/4 of a recipe using 1 egg white for a total of 7 “rochers”), then bake until golden. They were so pretty coming out of the oven that I nearly left them plain but the lure of chocolate drizzle (and some of them I dipped in chocolate as well) was too strong…

Dorie Greenspan Coco Rochers drizzled in chocolate from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comThese were SO delicious (I’m in Sydney right now and mum and I devoured these, wishing we’d made more but kind of glad we didn’t as we’d just have eaten them all!) and made me remember how much I love them. So simple, SO good.

    Your rochers look fab. Chocolate drizzle looks so decadent!

    This is how I envisioned mine would look, but I think my coconut was too finely shredded. Yours look perfect!

    i wanted to chocolate mine up, too, but like you i only made a 1/4 batch. i rushed to pack 4 of them up the second they were cool enough to take with me to give away….then it didn’t seem worth it just for the remaining 3. yours look soooo cute (and they are easy enough) that i’ll have to make them again!!

    I am glad you executed on the chocolate idea. I really need to do that next time. Safe travels.
