If it has coconut, chocolate, and nuts…I’m in!!! I just love those things mixed together. When it comes in the form of a recipe that only has 4 ingredients and is perfect for any occasion both formal and informal, well that just ROCKS!! Not to mention it’s a sweet little morsel of goodness!

Almond Joy Macaroons are so easy to make, just mix the ingredients together, scoop them onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake. Ta Da!!!

Yes, they really are that simple and quick.

I usually make a double batch of these as they tend to disappear quickly, especially around Christmas time.

**When you scoop these onto the cookie sheet, they may fall apart a bit. Don’t worry!!! Just wet your fingers a bit and form them. Make sure you push them together so they are tight and not crumbling all over.
