Soooo what are these chocolate macaroon bars all about? They are sweet and oh yes, very easy to make. There’s a thick chocolate layer on top and wafer crust on the bottom.* Smooshed in between is coconut and almonds held together by sweetened condensed milk. Can you go wrong with any of that? I didn’t think so.

Yes, these are sweet and thick. It’s holiday season though. That means you can overindulge in everything, right?
