Chocolate Chip Macaroons

Recipe courtesy of Matthew Karp, chef/co-owner of Plates, Larchmont 

Chef Karp says, “I have fond memories of making these macaroons with my mom, and now I make them with my own children. They make me think of the spirit of the holidays for that reason. Plus, they are super-easy, and they look like snowballs.”

Makes 2 to 3 dozen

Follow directions above, but omit chocolate chips from the macaroons.

When baked macaroons have cooled, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl on high power for about 1 minute. Stir until smooth.

Dip the bottom of the macaroons into chocolate. Place on plate or pan lined with wax paper, chocolate-side down, and refrigerate until set.
