Macarella - smashed macaroon with Nutella filling

Macarella - smashed macaroon with Nutella filling

We came upon a line of people waiting to get into the Tribeca Film Festival in the East Village a couple of weeks ago, but what caught our eye was the bright-colored Street Sweets truck parked outside the theater. We admired the delicious-looking desserts in the window and had the pleasure of meeting Samira, one of the founders. She told us one of the best-sellers was the macarella – a cookie that is basically composed of two smushed coconut macaroons with Nutella slathered in between. One rainy day, she and Grant (the other founder) were discussing how to make a chocolate version of the macaroon, and in a burst of inspiration, the macarella was born.
