Does anyone know if the french macarons at Bouchon Bakery are still available and what flavors are available this time of the year? Can I get them in a nice box? Would like to give them as part of a birthday gift.
No lie: macarons can be fairly finicky to make, in that they might spread into uneven shapes or form dark spots on their tops -- but even if they're not as beautiful as bakery specimens, they will still be delicious. The smooth chocolate ganache filling sandwiches the light, chewy-inside, delicately-crisp-outside chocolate macarons together, for a classic French dessert you shouldn't be afraid to try making.
