Want a sweet treat that won’t break the “sugar bank?” Look no further! We’ve combined the natural sweetness of coconut with dark chocolate and a surprise twist of dried cherries for a bite of heaven. By making the macaroons small and decreasing the amount of sugar, we have created an occasional indulgence that will satisfy your sweet tooth with one bite.
