Sweet & Chewy Coconut Butterscotch Macaroons

Sweet & Chewy Coconut Butterscotch Macaroons

Are you a lover of coconut? If you are, you probably have sunken your teeth into a deliciously sweet and chewy coconut macaroon at one time or another. Well this is a recipe that should get all of you coconut lovers excited!

So in an attempt at making a macaroon with a non-traditional flavor, I have added pure vanilla extract instead of almond. These cookies are sweet and chewy and dipped in butterscotch candy. Yes, they are as good as they look!

I really love the simplicity of this recipe, no long drawn-out process, just mix and bake, then dip in melted butterscotch candy. I am sure you will love them!
