You guys. I made macarons for our office bake-off.
Delicious delicious little pillows of magic. These puppies, which are coffee flavored with a dark chocolate ganache center, won me a parking space at the office for a month, AND a gift card to Amazon – helloooooo new baking tools!
The left picture is the first, winning, batch. Then some folks at the office were sad they didn’t get some, so I made the batch on the right. Can you spot the difference between the two? Aside from the different Instagram filters, of course. 🙂
The difference is the ganache! I got the ganache perfect the first time. The second time it broke just a little bit, and I didn’t realize it (it was late, I was tired…) until it was too late. But since it only broke a little tiny bit, no one at work noticed at all, and it’s still creamy and delicious and not grainy. Huzzah!
Want some of these (maybe in another flavor combo?) for your next get-together? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s chat!
