25 Days of Cookies Day 7 - Chocolate Macaroons

Not necessarily a Christmas cookie in the traditional sense - these are fabulous no-bake cookies that can be whipped up and shared quickly!  These are one of my Dad's favorites.

They're great year round, but we usually made them most often when it was too warm to put the oven on, or when mom needed it for something else...  I personally liked them still warm and gooey.  Being allergic to chocolate, so I don't eat them often anymore, but every once in a while I sneak one...
