Macaroon Madness – The 90 second Macaroon.

by zesty on April 20, 2011 · 45 comments

I was craving coconut! When I am craving something it is kind of like a 3 year old wanting the toy in the very bottom of the toy box that nobody can see or find but the kid knows it is in there.  I pretty much need whatever I am craving or I get a little cranky… I know scary.  With that said, I wanted to re-visit a refined 90 second macaroon.  I made these a while ago and was impressed with the simplicity and they hit the spot.


Macaroons in 90 seconds was born. This recipe is sooooooooo easy.

Literally 4 ingredients, some parchment paper, a plate and a microwave is all you need to whip these babies up. Give it a try.


  • 1 Egg White
  • 3/4 Cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1 Tsp. Cocoa
  • 1 Cup Icing Sugar


  1. Add egg white to a small bowl and beat until foamy on top.

  9. Microwave on high for 90 seconds.
  10. Let cool and move to rack.
  11. Repeat as this mixture should make 8.
  12. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Be very cautious of your microwave’s power.  I noticed in mine that the first batch I could have remove them around 75 seconds.  Just keep a close eye on them while in the microwave.

I hope you have a great Wednesday and I look forward to seeing you on Friday.  If you give these a try let me know how you make out.  My second time around I made them a little “bigger” to ensure they stayed oooey and gooey on the inside.

Take care
