Espresso and Mexican Hot Chocolate Macarons

Espresso Macrons_2

This past weekend I decided to attempt The Great Macaron again not realizing that today was Macaron day so the coincidence that I made them this weekend and did not post anything about them yet has seemed to work out quite well. 

Espresso Macrons_1

As I mentioned on my first Macaron post (The Great Macaron: The First Attempt) I did everything by hand because I did not have any sort of electric mixer at that point and I had no intention of getting one either. Then randomly my mom, who did not really know I was thinking about getting a kitchen aid, emailed me a great deal that she saw for one so I had to take the plunge and get it. Once it arrived the first thing I had to make was a second round of Macarons, especially since my sister was gone when I made the first attempt and she wanted to try one. This time I went for some flavor experimenting and made espresso cookies with a Mexican chocolate ganache filling. I think they turned out pretty well and I am pumped to make my next batch!
 
If you live in NYC and want to celebrate Macaron day check out this article by Grub Street for places offering free macarons! If you don’t live in the NYC area check out a place in your area that makes them or make your own. They are only as scary as you make them out to be!
