Chewy, sweet coconut macaroons, embellished with rich, dark chocolate, make irresistible party fare, and are terrific for anyone avoiding gluten.
Chewy, crunchy coconut macaroons are one of my husband’s favorites—and he does not have a big sweet tooth (unlucky for him since I love to bake all the time!). He does, however, have a hard time saying no to these and if I’m not careful (or I don’t keep them carefully hidden) they’ll just disappear.
The great thing about these cookies, besides the fact that my husband loves them and they’re delicious, is that they are a terrific option for anyone who is gluten-free or lactose intolerant. Making them is an ideal option for a party or gathering where you might have with multiple dietary requirements, whether for yourself or your guests. These are also a favorite for Passover.
Coconut macaroons only use a handful of easy-to-find ingredients that you may already have on hand. You can keep them plain, dip them in chocolate like I have suggested here, or take them over the top by drizzling any remaining melted chocolate over the tops of the macaroons.
