Here’s a belated shout-out to Sept 9th, national “I love food” day! (Yes, It’s actually a holiday!):
I recently discovered Foodimentary, an outstanding blog that celebrates food holidays, which is the most addicting website ever. I spent about 45 minutes looking up which food holidays fell on monumental days like Halloween (national caramel apple day) and my birthday (national raspberry popover, raspberry tart, and chocolate custard day). But out of all of the wonderful food holidays, my favorite is certainly national “I love food” day because I love food, or at least desserts! So in celebration, I made these delicious chocolate-covered coconut macaroons that are to-die-for! They are the best of a chewy cookie and ice-cream-like chocolate coating. This dessert looks absolutely beautiful, especially when you play with the chocolate flavors and designs! (Plus, check out the note below for a super fast and easy way to amaze your guests without spending hours in the kitchen!) Enjoy!!!
Recipe: Coconut Macaroons
**NOTE: These macaroons can easily be made as a semi-homeade version! Just use bakery/store-bought macaroons, melt some chocolate chips, dip and voila! Possibly the quickest, most delicious dessert ever!
