Friend Makin’ Mondays: Favorite Holiday Recipe

It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays! If you’d like to take part in the fun just answer the question below on your blog and add your link at the bottom of this post then take a few minutes to read and comment on other blogs.

I love being in the kitchen over the holidays. And I have so many family secret recipes, but this is one of my favorite cookie recipes. And Mom won’t be mad at me if I share it. 😉

My Weight Watchers leader in New York shared this recipe with us, and it is amazing! I first posted it in November of 2009, but I want to share it again. These cookies are so easy to make, and they’re so satisfying!

This week’s topic: What is one of your favorite recipes?

Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

1 box Angel Food cake
1/2 c. water
7 oz. coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. mini chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix the first four ingredients well then add the chocolate chips. Drop on a greased cookies sheet. (I use Pam.) Bake for 15 minutes and cool completely before removing from the pan.

Yield: About 30 cookies

Do you have a favorite fun and easy recipe to share? Link up below and share them with us! And be sure to come back later today to hear about the Twelve Days of Christmas Swap which starts today and a Twelve Days Challenge with Janna and me!

    I agree with Renee. I read your blog everyday and I think FMM makes Monday's seem so much better! 🙂 I am going to try your recipe minus the coconut because I am allergic. Thanks for hosting this!
