Originally from Cooking Light, Chewy Chocolate Macaroons are one of my favorite ways to use condensed milk.F The original recipe calls for fat free condensed milk, so feel free to use that if you have some. I use regular condensed milk and I always add some semisweet chocolate chips. Mine aren’t quite as light as the Cooking Light Chewy Chocolate Macaroons, but they are worth the extra calories.
