Chocolate Covered Coconut Macaroons

I’m a rather verbose girl- I like to use ten words when three will suffice. I have to constantly re-edit my sentences in my head to keep from sounding like Miss Chatterbox. I also tend to be particular about grammar, punctuation and pronunciation. One of my many quirks.
