My grandmother loves coconut. When my grandfather was alive he used to limit the amount of coconut she ate, because it was bad for her somehow. Now that he is gone she eats it whenever she wants. Every time I make macaroons I think about her.
A few weeks ago I was making Macaroons to take to a Shelf Reliance party and I wanted them to be a little more exciting. So I added chocolate chips, and the cookies turned out amazing. The party guests were fighting over the last macaroon.
Chocolate Chip Macaroons
2 cups dry macaroon cookie mix
5 Tablespoons Hot Water
½ cup chocolate chips
Place Macaroon Cookie Mix in a bowl and add water, blend with wire whisk. Fold in chocolate chips.
Let mixture stand for 5 minutes in bowl.
Shape and drop cookies onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
