White Chocolate and Coconut Madeleines

Back in January I posted a throwback on Instagram of my Chocolate Chip Madeleines and ever since I have wanted to make some more.

I have really been enjoying white chocolate lately and decided with some leftover white chocolate chips and desiccated coconut that this combination had to be the next set of madeleines.


I would apologise to all the coconut haters out there but in my opinion your taste buds just are not as superior as mine are.

I love coconut and have been wanting to add it to one of my bakes for a while but could not decide which one. I am glad I choose this combination.


Now you could happily use milk or dark chocolate chips if you preferred but the combination of white chocolate and coconut really go well together.

These madeleines are super light and fluffy and defiantly should be eaten warm in my opinion because fresh madeleines just taste better.


These little shell shaped cakes went down well, and I will defiantly be making these again even if they are just for me to enjoy.

The added white chocolate and coconut on the bottom of the shells just add some extra to these little cakes.
