Coconut Macaroon Mess
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, and I have a sneaky feeling as I write this recipe up, it would make a great cover for a book … but let’s see! Make all the elements ahead of time and then simply assemble for your family or guests as you serve! Keeping It Simple? Well of course!
I love everything about this one. The toasted coconutty fragrance and of course taste, the tart berries and a little sweetness from the cream. There is texture, colour and buckets of flavour. PLUS, as we mentioned earlier...super simple!
