Soft & Easy Coconut Macaroons ~ a coco-nutty love affair


Today was a dull day for me and I was so clueless what to do. From morning I was in a not so good mood, well lets not talk about it.. Past few days my hubby had been asking me to make Coconut 
Burfi and I was keeping this in mind but felt like trying something different (sometimes want things my way). I also wanted something that will be simple and take less time (asking too much), my quest ended up in this ~ Soft & easy Coconut Recipe. They are the most yummy and delicate darlings that one can taste. So much so my hubby came after work and was totally surprised and truly loved it



I remember back in India we used to get coconut macaroons in ‘old-fashioned bakeries’, where they used to make these fat chunky coconut biscuits that were hard to chew and you can literally feel the chunky coconut bits (which I totally dislike). Let me tell you that these are not so, they are little firm on the outside and soft in the inside. If you are someone who loves the chocolate Bounty or any other coconut based chocolate you will definitely love this one.
