Today is National Macaroons Day! Macaroons are the confusing cousin to the French Macaron, oddly pronounced the exact same way. However, these little cookies are dense and typically made of coconut, whereas, French macarons are meringue-based sandwich treats.
Both make great Halloween desserts, but since it is national macaroon day, I’m sharing a delightfully ghoulish recipe from MasterChef Season 6 contestant Hetal, of Milk &Cardamom, as contributed on the So Fab Food website.
Behold, Coconut Lime Macaroon Eyeballs
- 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp lime zest
- 3-4 drops green food coloring
- googly eye candies
- 1 oz milk chocolate, melted
