The good folks at Tropical Traditions sent me a big jar of Virgin Coconut Oil to sample. When the mail person delivered it to my door this morning I quickly opened the box, then the jar... took a sniff and stuck my finger into the thick coconut goop, tasted it YUM!
I love coconut, but I have never worked with coconut oil before. It sort of reminds me of sun tan lotion:P This is my first recipe. I wanted to keep that amazing coconut flavor. Rummaged through my cupboards and decided to make coconut macaroons, with a little chocolate flare:P This is not to be mistaken for the french macaron, that I have been seeing all over the blog world. Which is probably why I made these...subliminal messaging (must make macaron:P)
