Wow!, Member penny5chambers

I am not a macaroon lover normally but these are wonderful. I was looking for something more low fat, yet I am a chocolate lover. I expected them to be ho hum ok but was pleasantly surprised. They are yummy! I used Bakers unsweetened chocolate in place of the chocolate chips for a more intense chocolate flavor. Off to Easter dinner with these as our dessert.
