Since today is National Chocolate Macaroon Day, I decided to make a small batch using my favorite recipe, which is below. I only made a dozen because that seemed the best way to control overeating! 😉
Macaroons are basically coconut, egg whites, sugar, vanilla extract and salt. They are one of my favorite cookies, regardless of whether I bake them or pick them up at a bakery or even buy store-bought boxes. I do admit to preferring them dipped in dark chocolate as I did with the ones pictured here. I simply melted a couple squares of dark chocolate and added a few drops of coconut oil to it and then dipped the baked macaroons in the chocolate allowing it to set. I am keeping the cookies in a container in the frig.
Go ahead and give this recipe a try. And Happy National Chocolate Macaroon Day!
