Always Irresistible

macarons

I’ve mentioned my love for macarons before once or twice. My favourite place to find them here in Ireland is in Cocoa Atelier on Drury Street, Dublin 2.

I picked up a small selection in there one morning earlier this week and — showing willpower I never knew I had — didn’t eat them until I arrived home that evening. Settling down after a long wet day and seeing these beautiful vibrant treats all lined up in a little pink box…it was a pretty perfect moment right there and then :-).

The flavours I picked up that day were absinthe & lime, raspberry, blackcurrant and pear. I really couldn’t choose a favourite because they were all amazing. I’m leaning slightly towards absinthe & lime because I’d never seen that before. It also seemed like it could be a tricky one to pull off but the taste of anise and citrus was deliciously balanced. The only problem with these macarons is that they never last nearly long enough. I half feel like I should learn to make them myself but then I know if I do figure it out; it could be very dangerous — my willpower will definitely be put to the test then ;-).
