Pink Sprinkle Macaroons

    Ok, seriously?? What is it with me and PINK FOOD?? 
    I swear, all through Christmas I had pink recipes. 
    I even made Pink Popcorn!
    So now I give you Pink Macaroons!
    Enjoy 🙂

    I was in love with idea to make totally girly cookies that would be great for a girls party.
    What is more girly than Pink chocolate, Sprinkles, and jumbo pearl sprinkles?
    I think that these are just too cute!

    By the way, I got the “Celebration Pearl” Sprinkles at Hobby Lobby. I was looking for a link to show you, but I can’t find one.
    THIS is the closest I could find, but they don’t have this rainbow collection. 
    Anyway, check out your local Craft Store. These are hard sugar candy pearls, not soft sprinkles or Sixlets. They did melt slightly, so be careful handling them while they are hot.
