Cocoa Macaroon Muffins Recipe
This recipe is an old-time favorite that I've modified over the years depending on whether I served them for breakfast, a snack or as dessert. I love chocolate in any form, and these muffins pair it with coconut for a yummy result. -Carol Wilson, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
