Chocolate dipped Coconut Macaroons

All Dessert

SIMPLE, DELICIOUS, AND PRETTY

I love easy desserts, especially those that pretty enough to serve when I am entertaining.
These coconut macaroons are a snap to put together and are so tasty, try not to eat them all before your guest come over!

There are some add-ins you can incorporate, or you can keep it simple. The choice is yours!

Some of my favorite individual add-ins are:

  • 1/4 cup chopped salted almonds

  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs

  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

  • 1/4 cup dried chopped cranberries

  • 1/4 cup dried chopped cherries

  • 1/2 tsp of powdered cardamom

  • add a 1/2 tsp of almond extract

  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon + 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

For the chocolate you are using to dip the macaroons in, you can use this recipe or sometimes if I don’t have the ingredients on hand, I simply melt about 1/2 a bar of 78% Lindt chocolate with 2 tsp of coconut oil and use this.
