Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Macaroons
These little nibbles are always a favorite on my holiday trays.  The sweet little coconut morsels are drizzled with just a little bit of chocolate fudge, sending them over the top with flavor! Years ago, my friend, Toni, made these for my cookie exchange.  My father in law LOVED them, so now I make them every year.
I typically by a big bag of coconut when I make my hubby’s birthday cake.  He requests the same cake every year, my Chocolate Macaroon Tunnel Cake.  So, I have plenty leftover to make these cookies at Christmastime!
 They come together quickly, and I drizzle them with melted chocolate fudge frosting from a can.  You can also make a homemade Chocolate Ganache to drizzle them, if desired.
