But these are very cool too! They're so easy to make and I love that they're made with corn flakes because it makes them crunchy and not too coco nutty! I couldn't stop eating these...next time I'll definitely double the batch because the recipe only made about 20 macaroons. In my house that's only 3 servings. I think I'll drizzle them with chocolate next time. And next time might be today because the last 3 macaroons just got eaten while I was typing this blog post!
Here's the recipe link to these crunchy, sweet, tender coconut nuggets!
