Coo-Coo for Coconut

Coo-Coo for Coconut

I love coconut. I bathed with coconut lime bath wash this morning. I have coconut lip gloss on my lips, coconut extract on my spice shelf, coconut milk in my morning smoothies, and a former college crush on Malibu Rum, which is flavored with coconut. Of course, my favorite birthday cake request is … wait for it … coconut cake.

So as I suggest you make these coconut macaroons tonight (make these tonight), please keep in mind that is because I will be. And maybe next week, and maybe a month from now too. They’re easy. They make your house smell amazing. And, well, they’re coconut!
