2. HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates Stuffed Coconut Macaroons

Oh, coconut: how do we love thee? Let us count the ways. These macaroons are chewy on the outside with a soft, melt-in-your-mouth inside. For a crunchier, chewier shell, toast the coconut before adding it the cookie batter. For a softer snowy-white exterior, use fresh coconut and skip the toasting step before you bake the cookies.
