If you love coconut-chocolate candy bars, this may be your dream dessert. Ice cream coated in shredded coconut is served with bourbon-spiked butterscotch sauce and a crunchy chocolate-almond topping. You will have more of the topping than you need -- and that's a very good thing, as it's also excellent on its own.
Crisp-chewy baked meringues meet cool, creamy coconut sorbet in these blushing beauties. The light-as-air disks, tinted the palest shade of pink, are made by swooping and swirling meringue on to parchment; the top layers are sprinkled with shredded coconut before baking. Freezing the desserts (for up to a day) leaves the cakes soft enough to eat with a fork -- or a spoon, as you like it -- on any day or midsummer's night.
Press this macaroon mixture into mini muffin tins to create bite-size baskets for your favorite Easter candies. For a chocolate version, fill each basket two-thirds full with melted chocolate (we used three ounces total) and let them set before adding candies.
