Today was most definitely a day for macs! I had a request for mint, chocolate and cherries, so I made two different batches (because twice the fun is always better!): chocolate mint, and black forest.
Now, chocolate and mint go hand in hand. I was, however, skeptical about cherries and chocolate together in a macaron. I'm happy to say I was very, very wrong! The flavours of rich dark chocolate buttercream, cherry preserves, and a hint of rum worked wonderfully with the delicate almond macaron!
I filled my baking sheets with the little drops of meringues and realized, to my initial consternation, that I had leftover batter :|. Then something (which, at that moment, struck me as hysterical) occurred to me. I make macs. Get it, macs. As in apple. Apple macs! Tee hee! (Feel free to judge. I'm judging myself).
ANYWAY.... Here they are, in their not all that funny, but still delicious glory!
