Coconut Chocolate Macaroon Sandwiches
These cookies are so easy and so cute! Perfectly sized to pop in your mouth....so that before you know it, you ate 1/2 of them(who does those kind of things?).
But no worries! It's better than popping a pint of Ben and Jerry's in your mouth! I just saved you like, 2 pant sizes!
I love anything coconut and chocolate, and sometimes you need a lighter dessert...and these are just perfect!
