National Chocolate Macaroon Day is celebrated each year on June 3. The day comes right behind National Macaroon Day which is observed on May 31.
Macaroons are a quick and easy dessert made mostly of coconut, eggs and sugar with some variations.
Coconut macaroon is the best known variety in America. Commercially made coconut macaroons are generally dense, moist and sweet, and often dipped in chocolate. Homemade macaroons and varieties produced by smaller bakeries are commonly light and fluffy. Macaroons made with coconuts are often piped out with a star shaped tip, whereas macaroons made with nuts are more likely shaped individually due to the stiffness of the dough.Wikipedia
