Macaroon Love...


This week has been full of many things.  


Snow...but it was so very pretty, I couldn't get mad at it.


Crafting up some Easter fun for HGTV


And today, we made macaroons.
Chocolate - no bake - balls of goodness.


So easy to make and apparently, very full of antioxidants!
Mix 2 1/2 cups of the very best shredded coconut you can find 
with 1/2 a cup of sifted cocoa.


Enter one of my dearest old friends - Pure Maple Syrup..
and let's introduce it's new best friend - Virgin Coconut Oil.
Add 6 tablespoons maple syrup and 1/4 cup coconut oil the coconut. 
Aunt Jemima is not welcome to this party people.


Grab a fairy if you can find one and mix it all together.
Spoon small balls onto a sheet of parchment to set.
Not that I waited for that to happen.


That's it.
Really.
Enter the shark music...
da num..


da num..


dum dun dum dun dum dun...


Sweet Macaroons!
