Fudge Macaroons

I wasn't sure what to post this week for Merry Mondays. Fudge is the ingredient for the week and Fudge has just never been my thing. I found a recipe for Fudge Macaroons in one of my very favorite cookbooks - Dining by Fireflies by the Charlotte, North Carolina Junior League. I always thought a MACAROON had to have coconut but these do not. They are brownie-like - they remind me of chocolate crinkle cookies.

You should celebrate Merry Mondays with Claire or Taylor and see all of the recipes posted today with fudge. Last Monday, the ingredient was MINT and the week before that, the ingredient was cranberries. This has been so fun - check it out.

Fudge Macaroons (Dining by Fireflies - Jr. League - Charlotte, North Carolina)

1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
