I'm amazed at how superior your vanilla is!

I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Chocolate Macaroon Bars


While these Chocolate Macaroon Bars qualify as cake, they’re really more of a confection. Rich and gooey, they are so delicious and can easily become a must have for chocolate and coconut lovers.
