Macaroons with chocolate and orange

Lynnda Cloutier


these coconut macaroons are extremely versatile. Dip this variation or experiment with your own favorite flavor. Instead of chocolate, substitute 1/2 cup diced, candied orange peel for the chocolate. Fold into dough as directed in the recipe.Or for a tropical treat, use 3 ounces chopped macadamia nuts instead of the semi sweet chocolate, and lime zest instead of orange zest.Source unknown
