Chocolate Chip Macaroons: Retro Ad & Recipe

Have a birthday in April? Here's a Retro Ad from Baker's Chocolate for an April Birthday Party. Snowdrop Birthday Cake, Animal Cracker Place Cards, Chocolate Chip Macaroons and more! Happy Birthday to my April Birthday Friends.

Baker's has a one bowl Chocolate Chip Macaroon recipe in this ad. Simple and delicious. There are even some substitute ideas for the macaroons. Of course, you can use any fabulous ingredients you'd like, but I've copied the recipe as it was printed in April 1962. Recipe below.

Chocolate Chip Macaroons 

1 cup Semi-Sweet Baker's Chocolate Chips
2 cups Baker's Angel Flake Cocoanut
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp salt
*1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Combine chocolate chips, coconut, baking powder, and salt. Add vanilla and condensed milk and mix well. Drop from teaspoon on lightly greased baking sheet and bake in slow oven (325 F) 12 minutes, or until "deliciously" browned. Makes about 26 macaroons.
* One teaspoon grated orange rind may be added with vanilla. Or 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract may be substituted for vanilla.

Hi Janet:)
I was just putting the finishing touches on May's calendar for May 31st which as you proabably know is National Macaroon Day!

These would be perfect! I should dare to make them with chocolate sweetened condensed milk if I can find it. (I think it's a limited edition or something, lol:)

Thanks for sharing, Janet...GREAT AD!
