It seems like I *just* published my Chocolate Frosted Sugar Cookie Bar recipe for Sally’s virtual bridal shower, but it’s been years. It’s crazy how fast time goes.

Since we all know Sally still loves sprinkles, that’s our theme for this virtual baby shower! I chose to make Funfetti Coconut Macaroons. They’re stupid easy, super fast to make, and would be perfect on any special occasion dessert table. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the other recipes created by all of the other wonderful bloggers joining in for this shower.

    If I only have unsweetened coconut, should I increase sugar?

    I love coconut and these look fun and tasty.

    Tess, do you have a certain brand of sweetened shredded coconut that you use? I find that some brands I have bought just aren’t as good as others. Any help would be appreciated.
