    The beauty of this dessert lies in its simplicity, it only has 6 ingredients. If you are a fan of chewy coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate, then you will love this dessert as well.

It was utterly satisfying to see it turned out perfectly, with that beautiful brown caramel providing a heavenly moat. As far as Ina Garten recipes go, the woman can do no wrong. I have been loving her new […]
