Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

So I know it's been a while.  I've had a crazy month.  I moved from the suburbs to Brooklyn, had to deal with all the fun of moving into a fourth floor walk up, had to change jobs, so why not get back in the grove of things with a gluten free recipe so easy anyone can bake these?  Coconut macaroons are a great little indulgence.  Sweet with a hint a salt to balance them out, and if you dip them in dark chocolate the bitter notes are a perfect complement for the sweetness of the coconut.  This recipe takes about five minutes to complete and couldn't be easier.  The result will be delectable macaroons, crispy outsides with a smooth, soft, center.
