Coconut Lime Macaroons

I am certain by now you have realized that Jodie and I both have a love of coconut lime treats.  If you haven’t noticed, let’s take a walk down memory lane…

Coconut-Lime White Chocolate Pretzels, Key Lime Bars & Key Lime Pie Truffles all include coconut and lime and are all fantastic.

So when I whipped up these Coconut Lime Macaroons, ate one and fell in love with the powerful flavor combination, I immediately told Jodie that I had just made her new favorite cookie.  And not just her new favorite cookie – mine too!

These were so easy to make and absolutely scrumptious all by themselves.  But then I had the brilliant idea to melt down these new chocolate bars I had just picked up at the grocery store from Lindt. 

If you’ve not noticed, Lindt is now coming out with some amazing – AH-MAZING flavor combinations in a new line called “hello my name is…”.  And when I saw they had a Lime Splash bar, which is a lime white chocolate bar with Coconut Buttermilk filling, I knew I had to melt it down and dip my macaroons in it. And holy amazing. Absolutely delicious! It took these cookies to the next level of awesomeness. 

If you are looking to upgrade your every day coconut macaroon to a burst of flavor macaroon, then whip up a batch of these.  Nuuuuummy!
