This is by far my FAVORITE macaroon recipe I’ve made. There are different methods for making macaroons, and I’ve tried them all. There are variations with sweetened condensed milk, or where you just stir everything together before baking, but to get the taste and texture that I personally love, I find it necessary to cook everything together on the stove top before shaping and baking them. It’s a small change, but it gives the cookies my ideal texture: crunchy and golden brown on the outside, but still really moist and soft on the inside.
Now, like with all things in life, I think they’re better when combined with chocolate. Seriously, name me 3 things that are NOT improved with chocolate. I’ll wait.
I like my macaroons shaped into cones or balls an half-dunked into bittersweet chocolate, but some people like dunking the whole thing, or just dipping the bottom in chocolate. If you can handle serious sweetness, another surprisingly good combination is coconut and butterscotch chips–be sure to add an extra pinch of salt if you go this route.

This Key Lime Pie On A Stick dessert was inspired by our many trips to the Florida Keys where they sell slices of key lime pie dipped in chocolate and frozen. This homemade version is a little smaller and perfectly portioned. Don’t be intimidated. It’s way easier than you think!

Two graham cracker cookies sandwiched between a marshmallow cream, dipped and covered completely in chocolate. This is like S’mores on steroids but without the annoying growth of chest hair. Then again, it just depends on how many of them you eat. These babies are double-decker style, however. That’s right. Double-decker. Nothing is too good for my friends. That means there is a cookie, marshmallow filling, cookie, more filling, and another cookie! Phew.

These are extra refreshing because of the fresh mint in there and because they’re popsicles, they’re a lot easier to make! I added matcha too, just for that pale green color, but leaving it out is just as good too.
