DIRECTIONS FOR ADDITIONAL TOPPINGS + VARIATIONS

DARK CHOCOLATE DIPPED / DRIZZLE
- If dipping/drizzling the macaroons in chocolate, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at medium power, stopping and stirring at 30 second intervals, until just smooth and creamy.
- Dip the bottoms of the macaroons in the chocolate, letting any excess drip back into the bowl, and return to the lined baking sheets.
- If drizzling, use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the cookies. OPTIONAL – add a whole almond on top of the cookie before drizzling.
- Place the macaroons in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

SPRINKLES/FUNFETTI
- Add ½ cup of rainbow sprinkles to the batter to make rainbow a.k.a. Funfetti macaroons

HERSHEY’S KISSES OR “CHERRY ON TOP”
- Before placing macaroons into the oven, make a little divet at the top of the mound and insert a Hershey’s Kiss or a ½ Maraschino Cherry
