Coconut Macaroons

After I posted the recipe for the Candied Pecans it got me to thinking (very prematurely I might add) about other Holiday Treats.  Let’s face it, starting with Halloween right on down to Christmas we are inundated with commercials pushing all kinds of very unhealthy, processed foods on us.
