The fantasies of coconut palm populated islands, surrounded by impossibly white sand and turquoise blue water continued today, with Edna's Triple Chocolate Coconut Macaroons. Generous in size, and large on (unsulphured) flaked coconut taste, these macs contained semi-sweet chocolate chips, cocoa, and a drizzle of semisweet chocolate topping.

These thick strips of coconut (from Haiti), covered in (70% cacao) dark chocolate, from Tropical Valley Foods (Plattsburgh, NY), maintained a strong sense of original coconut flavor, shape and chewy texture.

These organic, smile-shaped treats were made with no additives or preservatives, although the chocolate did have some soy lecithin -- likely used to give the chocolate a smooth texture.

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
