Coconut Macaroon Gems

Do you ever get a craving for something sweet, yet you want more than a candy bar or a cookie from the market? Or you need a quick little dessert to serve? These little Coconut Macaroon Gems are the perfect answer. It is hard to believe that they take about 10 minutes to prep, and can be ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. You can make these fancy or plain, either way they are delicious.

What you will need:

Coconut macaroon ingredients
Coconut macaroons

The heat of the oven brings out the flavor of the coconut. The center is very moist and the outside is toasted and crunchy! The vanilla and almond flavorings create a rich and unique taste.

The drizzled white chocolate adds a pretty and delicious finishing touch!
