My daughter went to visit her aunt and grandmother close to the holidays this past year. While she was there, they spent an afternoon baking many different varieties of cookies to be enjoyed at the festivities soon to occur.
When she arrived home, she handed me a bag of Tupperware containers filled to the brim with delicious cookies, bars, and chocolate treats.
When I spied the tub of coconut macaroons, I quietly hid them on the top shelf of my pantry. I couldn’t wait to indulge in the sweet goodness of coconut drizzled with dark chocolate.
Little did I know how easy they are to make. After a quick lesson from my daughter, the smell of coconut filled the kitchen and we had plenty left over to share.
If you’re a big fan of coconut sweets, we also recommend this recipe for white chocolate coconut delights!
