Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I wanted to make a fun and easy treat to take with us on our trip to Idaho. My kids and I had a great time making these tasty treats and both kids thought they tasted AMAZING. Because of the hot weather, I knew I would need to store these Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons in the refrigerator and I was worried they would taste dry. Thankfully, I was wrong! They still tasted moist inside and didn’t melt in our hands. They were delicious!

  1. How did you know – this is my absolutely favorite dessert – coconut macaroons- and you made them even more perfect dipped in chocolate.
