Each year, for Passover, I make macaroons.  For the past few years I have been making the same
macaroon ( Martha Stewart Living Magazine) recipe, but this year I wanted to try something different.  Not that I don’t like the old favorite,  I wanted to experiment.
I was reading some food blogs on Tastespotting and I read this fabulous blog ( I didn’t bookmark and now can’t find it-sorry)  that inspired me to take out my very, very old Joy of Cooking cookbook.  After I found the recipe that I was hunting for, I starting recipe surfing.  I stumbled upon some coconut macaroons that were oh so easy.  I whipped up a batch.
They were DELICIOUS on their own, however I wanted to mix it up a bit.  I made a simple chocolate glaze with some bittersweet chocolate, diluted espresso and some butter.
I made such a big batch of glaze that the remainder was used to make vanilla bean ice cream sundaes for the kids that evening.  They didn’t complain!
