I am reminded of that quote when I make these Coconut Macaroon Truffles. They're based, of course, on macaroon cookies, the crispy, chewy, fragrant and sweet cookies comprised almost entirely of shredded coconut. But because they are so small, and because they are entirely coated in chocolate, to my mind they also have candy qualities. So there you have it: Macaroon truffles are not quite cookies, not quite candy, but they're delicious--no slice of cantaloupe required.
