Salted Caramel, Chocolate Almond + Double Chocolate Danny Macaroons

Heads up Chicago!! Get ready to experience the most scrumptious macaroons of your life as Danny Macaroons are now sold in the Windy City! Now you can be one of the first to get in on the early first stages of the Chicago launch of these macaroons. We aren’t talking about French macarons here, but instead the coconut (gluten free) variety, and boy do they have us raving about their awesomeness. New Yorkers fell in love with these award winning macs, created by macaroonist we love, Danny Cohen, and now Chicago is going bananas over them as well.

Small, yet decadent, Danny Macaroons come in over 50 flavors. You’ll easily find salted caramel, chocolate almond, chocolate dipped, and more in Chicago stores. Soon, you might get lucky and chow down on chocolate banana nut, stout, peanut butter + jelly, and bourbon. If your mouth is watering and you want to get your hands on these macaroons to find out what everyone is talking about, you can now find Danny Macaroons at these Chicago locations: Belly Shack, La Colombe, Little Beans, JP Grazianos, Filter Cafe, Goddess + Grocer, and The Haute & The Dog for just $2-3 each. You can also catch Danny Macaroons’ pop up at Bow Truss 3/6, 3/13, 3/16…
