It’s time to get baking!  These Chocolate Peppermint Coconut Macaroons are easy but impressive!  They’re perfect for a cookie exchange but be sure to make an extra dozen or two for home!

One of our favorite things to make for the holidays is cookies. My family has long been a fan of a simple but decadent coconut macaroons. They made are extra special for the holidays dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint.

My girls love to make these.  It is an easy Christmas cookie and perfect for a cookie exchange also. You can also print the recipe card for this below.
