I feel like I'm finally on track for Sweet Melissa Sundays, having missed the past two weeks. And what better way to jump back in than with a super easy recipe.
Five ingredients- what more simplicity could one ask for?
Finely chopped high-quality semi-sweet chocolate
(which precludes my four-pound bag of Nestlé chips...)
I like all that chocolate dust.
Mix in granulated sugar,
then roll into balls!
(I left out the fifth ingredient, orange zest.)
I made the balls bite-size, about an inch wide, so the macaroons baked up in 18 minutes. That way you can easily pop one (or two!) into your mouth.
The macaroons have the perfect combination of chewy interior and crunchy, flaked exterior.
Simple and satisfying.
A shout-out to Ellen of Blue Tree Heart, who hosted this week's choice and on whose website you can find the recipe.
