This easy treat recipe comes to us thanks to a reader request! I absolutely love when you guys tell me what you want to see here on the blog, so don’t be shy! A visitor recently made my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bites that are a copycat of the delicious Hail Merry bites. She loved them, but wanted a chocolate version for her chocolate-loving boyfriend. How could I say no to that?! Yummy Hubby happens to love coconut macaroons, so I’m always up for making a batch. Coconut seems to be one of those foods that people either love or hate. Which side are you on?
Coming up with this cocoa macaroon recipe was as easy as it gets. Just a handful of simple ingredients are needed. The base of these coconut bites is, of course, coconut. I used unsweetened, finely flaked coconut from Bob’s Red Mill. If can only find larger flaked coconut, just pop all the ingredients in the food processor to blend. I’m sharing a very basic recipe for these chocolate macaroons, but feel free to play around with it. I have a feeling these would be a great place to add hemp seeds. Given my love of all things chocolate and peanut butter, I’ll be adding some peanut butter next time too!
