We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Blogging…

Happy Friday! We’re switching it up a bit on the blog today, as I’ve got a super yummy….dessert for you! I know, it’s Breakfast Feast Friday today, but, I made these little gems last night for The Sweetheart to bring to a work potluck, and they were so  amazing, I just couldn’t wait to share!

Chocolate-Dipped Pumpkin Pie Macaroons

1 package (14 ounces) flaked coconut

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1 Tbsp Baileys Irish Cream

1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

6 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate, melted with 1/8 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350°F

1. . Mix coconut, sweetened condensed milk, Baileys and pumpkin pie spice in large bowl. Drop by Tbsp onto greased baking sheets.

2. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool Completely

3. Dip bottom of each cooled cookie in melted chocolate. (Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler on the stove-top with the cream.) Allow to cool on wax paper.

I had to use the photo from the original recipe because of the terrible lighting in my kitchen last night. I’ve never understood the reasoning behind the DIY light box tutorials…but I’m beginning to now!

On a fitness note, I ran my timed 5K yesterday.

10 seconds slower than last week, but I was still happy with the time. 3 weeks until the Turkey Trot!

Have an amazing weekend! Any fun plans?

  1. I’m heading to a wedding this weekend. Complete with dancing, good food, and lots of fancy pictures. And then I plan on watching football all day Sunday. Can’t wait to relax! And maybe make some macaroons!

  2. I have a pool of saliva in my mouth right now. Those macaroons look DELICIOUS! I wish they would invent those tv’s from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory already, because I’d be all over those macaroons! =]

    • I know! Had they been for our house, and not a potluck…I would have eaten every last one. Yumm. I’m thinking about making another batch tonight…but…maybe I shouldn’t! Thanks for reading!

  3. I love macroons! I’ve never seen pumpkin ones though – I will definitely have to give this recipe a whirl though! Don’t sweat your 10 second difference – probably just a Garmin malfunction anyway. 😉

  4. That’s a great 5k time!*

  5. I made macaroons for my husband’s work and his co-workers still talk about them when I go and visit him at work!

  6. yummmm.. those look fantastic.

    it will hopefully be a productive weekend around here! no big plans… just how i like it 🙂
