    These macaroons taste wonderful dipped in melted chocolate with a little drizzled on top. It reminds me of an almond joy! They also are adorable with chocolate eggs on top for Easter celebrations.

    I am a HUGE coconut fan. When I was a kid, my grandma used to sprinkle coconut on top of sliced oranges for a quick side dish. It turned into a little thing she always did for me. From then on, I loved anything involving coconut!

    I love baking macaroons. They are one of the easiest cookies to throw together. They have only 6 ingredients and are mixed up really quick in a mixing bowl. This recipe was one I got years ago from a friend and I make them every year. It’s easy to cut this recipe to half, or to double, triple, etc. They’re soft, chewy and are chock full of coconutty goodness. These are the perfect addition to your holiday cookie plates!
