Dip the bottoms of the macaroons within the chocolate, letting any extra drip again into the bowl, and return to the lined baking sheets. Place the macaroons within the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to permit the chocolate to set. The cookies preserve nicely in an hermetic container at room temperature for about a week.

Before serving, take away the cookies from the container and allow them to come to room temperature.
