Want to make your cookies look super cool? Here’s an idea that got a lot of rave reviews at my holiday party: glittery coconut macaroons.

Did you know that edible glitter is really a thing? It’s really fun to play around with! I usually buy the Disco Dust brand, which comes in dozens of colors. The “hologram silver” is my favorite for this kind of application.

It works really well with a craggy cookie like a coconut macaroon. Delicious and glittery. Ideal for any and all of the winter holidays.

How To: Make Gorgeous Glittery Coconut Macaroons

  • Make this macaroon recipe, but omit the sugar. Let cool to room temperature on wire racks.
  • Mix 1/3 cup sugar with a whole bunch (like, half a jar) of hologram silver or regular silver (or combination) disco dust.
  • Gently toss macaroons in glittery sugar.
  • That’s it.

This is a little risky. The link goes to the site that says about these glitters, in bold type, “They are not a food product and should not be considered as such.”

But some people might not get it.

You are totally right, use at your own risk! I have never had a problem using a little bit. But thank you for pointing that out!

You’re welcome! I usually just use a coarse and sparkly sugar, in those cases!
