Mad About Macarons Part Deux

Way back in January of ’08 we tackled French Macarons.  They were successful and we wanted to taste them before we went to France where they are so amazingly popular.  There are shops devoted only to Macarons!  And that idea has made its way across the big pond as well, I hear.  Very cool.  Anywho, here are the Chocolate w/Buttercream filling Macarons I made for a dear friends birthday today.




The middle picture is where I was playing around trying to decide how to package them when I remembered I had mini cupcake carriers and they fit perfectly!  I had to taste of them and they were good…now my tummy hurts but I think it was worth it.  I hate having food allergies.  Hate it.
