I won’t keep you. You have presents to wrap. You lost the tape 3,461 times in the course of said Christmas wrapping and I’m probably coming at you with these macaroons at a bad time.

But I’m gonna do it anyway. ‘Cause I’m a Noche Buena thug; Christmas Eve thug for the non-latino folk. And speaking of Noche Buena, you have dinner to cook.

Or perhaps you’re not cooking dinner this time.

Perhaps you’re a guest in someone else’s home.

Flow with me, Noche Buena style.

Every good guest should bring a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ for the host. I mean, it’s the right thing to do. You can’t roll up to someone’s house with the intent of filling your belly empty handed.

You just can’t.

It’s rude as hell.

Why don’t you bring dessert?

Roll up with these Coquito Macaroons. These macaroons are easy to make with very few ingredients – Sweetened flaked coconut, Coco Lopez, condensed milk, egg whites, spices, and rum.

Macaroons are totally no fuss, no muss. They’re like a drop cookie situation – Just mix, drop, and pop in the oven. You can apply your make-up as they bake, or locate the 4th roll of wrapping tape you lost. Macaroons are a super low maintenance dessert situation.

And did I mention these Coquito Macaroons are gluten-free? Yah. That’s brownie points for the Celiacs, boo.

Did I mention these Coquito Macaroons tastes JUST.LIKE.COQUITO?!

Yup, they do. I took all the flavors of coquito (again) and I infused them into coconut flakes (again). These Coquito Macaroons are crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and taste like our eggnog.

So don’t be “THAT PERSON”.

The one who rolls up to someone else’s house, eats all the food, drinks allllll the drinks, and comes over empty handed, without a bringing a lil’ somethin’ to the person who slaved alllll day to put this meal together for you.
