Happy National Macaroon Day! Note, we said macaroon not macron —though they often get mixed up. Do you know the difference between these two delectable treats?
Macarons are typically made from almond flour while macaroons are made with coconut flakes. The first treat often comes in colorful little bites, whereas macaroons look like coconut mounds instead of traditional cookies. So when we say we made coconut macaroon brownies for macaroon day, we're basically saying that we took our amazing brownie mix and added a delicious coconut macaroon layer.
And trust us, it's delicious. Exactly what the coconut-lovers in your life need at this moment. Let's get to baking, shall we?
