Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Minutemen Macaroons


It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is MINUTEMEN MACAROONS!

I’ve always loved Mounds (and Almond Joy) candy bars so it’s only fitting I also have a wonderful coconut cookie recipe. Making these cookies is a breeze and the end result is scrumptious! Add chocolate and/or almonds and you can recreate the candy bar flavors. A three-in-one cookie recipe!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

Happy Eating!

    1. …and who doesn’t want MORE than one candy bar. This way you can have as much as you want! (No. I don’t take responsibility for your inability to moderate your intake.) 🙂

  1. I am going to make these for our BBQ this next weekend. Great dessert.
    Thank you for the recipe.
    Have a great weekend.
