NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MACAROON DAY
Each year, National Chocolate Macaroon Day celebrates a tasty treat. Last month we celebrated National Macaroon Day on May 31st. Now we add a little chocolate to the mix, sweetening the deal.
The main ingredient is always shredded coconut, usually sweetened and sometimes toasted. Other ingredients include flour, sugar or sweetened condensed milk, and egg whites and flavoring. Once the ingredients are combined, the mixture is dropped by spoonfuls onto baking sheets and baked. Chocolate is added either to the batter or the baked cookie is dipped into melted chocolate. While these cookies are quite beautiful, people either love or hate coconut.
These sturdy cookies go well with coffee and tea, too. Serve them with biscotti, shortbread or lemon cookies to add variety.
