Happy National Macaroon Day! Have you ever tasted a real, true, homemade macaroon? Once you have, I doubt you will ever be able to eat a store-bought macaroon ever again.
Unlike the store-bought with who knows what else in it, these macaroons really highlight the coconut. It's basically the only ingredient. Coconut and chocolate are a perfect match — almost as good as chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and mint. Come to think of it, chocolate is good with just about everything. When there's melted dark chocolate involved, you really can't go wrong.
