Well these are cute!
Not to be confused with French macarons, or very French Macron, macaroons are a coconut and egg white chewy cookie that resonate for me as being from my childhood. My mum would make these and I would push the mixture into an egg cup to form the shape. I think those were called coconut pyramids back in the day. Or at least that is what we called them.
Fast forward 100's years to chocolate macaroons and of course, how could we not turn them into little Christmas puddings. Too easy. Very cute, and very giftable. (Edible of course, but gift them, or you will eat them all yourself. Pretty delish!) Merry Christmixing!
