Ingredients

Macaroons

Glaze

  • 4 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 4 teaspoons unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 4 teaspoons water
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Cover cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper or foil. In large (4-quart) glass or metal bowl, beat cake mix, 1/2 cup water and the almond extract with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. On medium speed, beat 1 minute, scraping bowl occasionally. Fold in coconut.
  • 2
    Drop half of the mixture by teaspoonfuls about 3 inches apart onto lined cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool macaroons completely before removing from parchment paper.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, stir 1 tablespoon cocoa into remaining mixture. Bake and cool as directed above.
  • 5
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, 4 teaspoons cocoa and 4 teaspoons water over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted. Stir in powdered sugar. Drizzle small amount of glaze over each cookie.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Parchment paper can be found in the baking aisle of most major supermarkets.
  • tip 2
    Not an almond fan? Make cool mint macaroons by using mint extract instead of the almond.
