Chocolate Macaroons

It’s happened. It’s two days before Christmas (eek!) and I am sick of pumpkin spice flavored treats. This happens every year. There is just too much pumpkin spice in the world from October to the holidays. I made a batch of Pumpkin Spice Macaroons for a friend on Sunday and had no interest in eating any of them!

When deciding what treat to bring upstate for Christmas I knew I wanted to make macaroons. They are easy to make, travel well, and last a long time. Since pumpkin spice was out I made a chocolate version. They turned out so well! I had to fight Doug off or he would have eaten them all before Christmas!
