I am looking for a recipe for coconut macaroon candy. I believe the no cook type is what I am most interested in. I've found a lot. but they are all baked like cookies. My mother-in-law made these, but I don't think they were cooked. They were just coconut dollops on waxed paper.

I don't have the recipe, but think the were made with sweetened canned condensed milk.
No Bake Coconut Macaroon Recipe
1 lb fresh pineapple
fresh grated coconut shreds ( OR toasted )
crushed mixed nuts ( pistachios, peanuts, almonds and cashews )
toasted sesame seeds
1) In the blender, crush the pineapples, and cook them on the wok on low heat until a paste-like texture is formed, then set aside and cool down in the refrigerator.
2) Chop the mixed nuts, and mix that in with the pineapple paste and sesame seeds.
3) With the palm of your hand, make small tiny serving sized balls with the pineapples and nuts mixture.
4) Coat the macaroon balls with fresh grated coconut shreds.
These two are absolutely no cook, no bake:
I think macaroons are actually cookies and not candy. They just taste like candy ;-)
