I’m really excited about today’s post for a few reasons: 1) I have been saying for a while that macarons are my new cupcake. 2) They are so sophisticated, elegant and easy for serving at an adult-only event. 3) A friend of mine has started her own macaron business!
Even desserts have “trending” moments. You have seen it with cupcakes and most recently, the cronut. Macarons are special because they are tiny with big flavors and you don’t have to feel so guilty about enjoying the beautiful little treats. I love that you can have them for early-morning coffee with your mommy friends or serve them over brunch with champagne. They even make a great afternoon tea delicacy.
My friend Rita recently introduced me to her new, very own, handmade macarons. Mallika and I only needed one bite to tell you that Macaron Schmacaron are delicious! We tasted Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, Raspberry, Lemon, Ginger, Coconut-Lime, Chai Spice, and Hazelnut-Praline. You can just imagine our fun afternoon!
Rita makes the macarons from scratch and she takes extra care with the fillings, often coming up with her own recipes. She shares with us that for special events, you can have a custom macaron designed especially for you!
Macaron Schmacaron make a great gift as well! Consider them for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or for the perfect hostess! Enjoy!
