    Wouldn't serve these to any guests, sorry! I'd give these a total zero rating if I could. Try adding one ingredient, ALMOND PASTE, & they'll taste like the greatest cookies. Might be more costly per recipe but only slightly more per cookie. If you're going to make cookies, make cookies to be proud of & the recipe as written is NOT. Sorry! Chocolate drizzle over the top is nice, but use a dark chocolate to cut the sweetness. My opinion only!

    Who woulda thought these could be so easy. This is hubby's favorite cookie!

    Very good, pretty and easy. As long as you like coconut, what's not to like?

    I have used this recipe for many years. It is always a favorite. Mine calls for a candied cherry in the middle and no chocolate. This looks like a great variation. If you like coconut this is a great treat! Do not stack them without paper between layers when storing. They also freeze well.

    these are a real keeper. I made 18 different kinds of cookies this year in my holiday gift tins and these were a hit. everyone loves them. they are so easy to make. I have added a leftover egg white into this batter - helps keep them stick together better.

    I was not impressed by this recipe. The macaroons lacked a certain density of other more traditional recipes.

    These are soooo easy, and really delicious! Keep an eye on them as they bake, especially at around the 12-minute mark. They can quickly go from golden to overdone. I'm definitely doing these for cookie exchange this Xmas.

    Very pretty but still not as tasty as a Mounds bar :(

    These simple cookies taste good and are easy to make. Put them on them on a pretty tray, and guests will snap them up. Store in an airtight container.

    What could you substitute for the condensed milk that's non-dairy?

    Followed this recipe and it turned out so yummy! Will definitely make it again!

    What is suppose to hold these together? The drizzle was lumpy, but I used semi sweet chips. What I ended with is a pile of toasted coconut with what looks like poop on top. Can not even get my family to eat these, will have to buy something to bring to the party.

    You could substitute the baking sheets for aluminum foil, I found out. This was all my family thought about even after they were long gone. The aroma of the toasted coconut was irresistible! Couldn't make a better dessert! I would however substitute the dark chocolate for a milk or even white chocolate for this dessert, as it feels too strong for the delicate taste of toasted coconut.

    Made these for my nieces bridal shower, they where a huge hit and very easy to make.

    Love this recipe! Just a note: remember to use parchment paper (or something similar)-the sugar will crystallize on your pan. The parchment paper will help to keep the cookies from falling apart from trying to get them off the pan. I had them in the oven for 15 minutes and it was perfect. Enjoy!
