Chocolate French Macarons (and Gourmet French Macarons Book Giveaway) - on glorioustreats.com

Have you ever had a French Macaron?  Macarons are one of those treats that are memorable enough that you would KNOW if you’ve had them or not!  I enjoyed my first French Macarons a couple years ago, when a friend shared a batch she had made.  That was all it took to be hooked!  French Macarons have such a unique combination of textures (crisp, chewy and smooth) and come in such an endless array of flavors!

Not only are the flavor options endless with French Macarons, but so are the colors and shapes!  Mindy Cone (of Creative Juice) has just published the most beautiful and inspiring book FULL of creative ideas for Macarons!   Her book, Gourmet French Macarons is loaded with full page photos (taken by Mindy herself!) and all the instructions for creating the most adorable, beautiful and fun Macarons ever!

  15. The first time I’ve tried one was a month ago. It was my baby’s second birthday. I heard they were good so I ordered 50 of them for the party. The favlor was strawberry. The funny thing is that day a unexpected storm hit the city where we live and when I was organizing everything in the park. Everything blew away, we just could save some stuff. One of the things we saved were 5 macarons, wow they were delicious. I’ll never forget that day.

  16. Lemon are the best
