Take one currently-effervescent soul.
Add a dozen handfuls of friendship which, whether old or newly established, feel entirely essential to existence.
Whisk in a pinch of excited nervousness, a teaspoon of adventure, and two cups of coconut.
Stir until the mixture is smooth, then add sugar to represent the sweetness of life, and bitter dark chocolate to provide balance through intensity.
Bind together with a scoop each of hope, courage, dedication, and laughter, and then watch as your treat is burnished gold by the radiant light of exponential happiness.
If you’ve followed the recipe correctly, you should have before you two trays of heavenly-tasting chocolate chip coconut macaroons. They should be crisp on the outside, yet dense with gorgeous moist coconut-heavy sweetness inside. The flecks of dark chocolate will sing out their presence, and you’ll only feel a tiny bit nervous offering these homemade bites of wonderment to the spectacular people you’re interning for.
Don’t feel nervous. Chances are, your colleagues will love these dairy-free and gluten-free chocolate chip macaroons, almost as much as you love this life you’ve twirled into.
So go on, won’t you? Take one effervescent soul, and add a dozen handfuls of friendship.
