Against my better judgment, I tried a new recipe for coconut macaroons. It called for no egg or flour, and ran all over the parchment paper. I scraped it up and wonder if I could salvage the sticky coconut, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk concoction for some type of dessert. Does anyone have any ideas?

Bake a batch of chocolate cupcakes. Fill cupcake tins 2/3 full, then add 1 or 2 tablespoons in center of cupcake [the macaroon batter]. That's all. When they bake chocolate will bake up and around filling and you will have macaroon filling in the center of chocolate cupcakes. Yummy!

Great idea, Cathy, thanks so much!
Put it a pie crust and bake it. If some left over, make shells in cupcake pan and fill those. mmmm
Another possibility would be to stir in a couple of eggs, then cook the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Coconut pudding!
Add confectioner's sugar, roll into balls, and dip into melted chocolate.
I would put it over a pound cake, or maybe some ice cream. Good luck.
Break them into pieces on parchment. Melt 10 oz chocolate, 8 Tbsp. butter with 3 Tbsp. corn syrup. Stir in 'wasted' cookie and mini marshmallows. Let harden. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Break into pieces. Voila; rocky road cookies!
