I always get compliments from my kids, grandkids and great-grandkids on these elegant cookies. Dipping macaroons on raspberry-flavored chocolate makes them uncommonly good!

"Out of all the recipes on this site I chose this one, not really sure why. Well, I am soooo glad I did. Incredible. I dipped them half of the way in chocolate so the chocolate sauce was enough for 2 batches. It was also a lot easier to handle during the dipping. So good thanks. So easy too! I made them while my sister was over w her 3 yr.old twins and new baby (and her dog) and my two children. In other words it was quick and didn't take much concentration:))"
