It’s been awhile since my last update and I apologize! Things have been a little busy and I fell behind with my posting. However, I did want to share something I made over Christmas. I found these adorable and functional macaron boxes at BRP Box Shop and decided to order a case of them. Craft stores, such as Michaels and Jo-Ann Fabrics do not carry macaron boxes, so if you’re looking for them, check out BRP Box Shop. They also carry a variety of boxes for cakes, cupcakes, and pies

So for Christmas, I made gift boxes and filled them with a variety of macarons, including, coffee, peppermint chocolate, lemon, and strawberry. They were a hit and the boxes looked great!

Coffee and Lemon Macarons

It’s been awhile since I made macarons, so this weekend I decided to revisit them. They are also one of the most challenging things I’ve had to bake, so I tend to make them for special occasions now. I was also inspired by a book I picked up this weekend- it has 30 recipes of macarons!

Picking the flavors was easy- I went with my current favorite dessert choices-  coffee and lemon. The coffee macarons were filled with a dark chocolate ganache, while the lemon was filled with a tangy lemon buttercream. I purposely make these bite-size in order to feel less guilty if I eat two or three of them in one sitting.
