I made these bad boys as gifts for both my mom and my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. Not including the freeze time, these took me mayybe 15 minutes to prepare. These Paleo Chocolate Coconut Haystacks (also referred to as Macaroons) are a great mix of chocolate, coconut and sweetness, thanks to the raw honey.
This is my last full week before the pageant so no more sweets for me until Sunday. I mean look at these cookies! Thank goodness I gave the majority of them away, otherwise it would have been a disaster having them in my freezer – staring back at me all week. :)
For Mother’s Day we took our families out for brunch and to see The Great Gatsby. Apparently Mother’s Day is the #1 eat-out holiday and boy am I glad I added a large enough buffer before the movie otherwise we may have been late for sure.
As for The Great Gatsby, I really enjoyed it. The blend of modern music throughout was so fun. I absolutely love movies based in that gangster/flapper period of history. Have you seen it yet? What did you think?
Back to the cookies! I thought having an additional drizzle of chocolate on top would be a nice topping but really they don’t even need it. These haystacks can absolutely stand alone.
If you give them a try, let me know what you think. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
