German Chocolate Macaroons

I am hesitant to even post another recipe…the last one was such a hit, I just don’t think I can top it.  Seriously. I’ve never had that kind of traffic.  And I mean, instead of 4 people looking at the blog/recipe, I had 100.  100 !! I’m totally not kidding when I say this is a hobby.  I LOVE when people look and use the recipes, but I make no money from this. So seeing people run the traffic up on the site made my heart happy! So thank you!

This isn’t an instant pot recipe, but so worth the effort! I had never made macaroons before and these were delightful! And easy.  I think I never did them before because I was scared to.  But take it from me.  Nothing to be scared of! And even better, they are German Chocolate…Let the drooling commence. Enjoy!
