Like many people, I love the Smitten Kitchen blog. She thinks of a new twist on even the simplest recipes, things that are right in front of your nose. Dark Chocolate Macaroons is just one example. I make the regular ones and dip them in chocolate and everyone loves them. But, these are taken to a new level of scrumptious.
I added my own flair, which I love as well. Instead of vanilla extract, I use almond extract. I wanted more of an almond joy kind of flavor! And these don't disappoint.
Here's the link to Smitten Kitchen's recipe, so you can decide for yourself. She uses a cookie scoop to make hers, but I used a rounded teaspoonful.
These are so easy to make and even easier to eat!
