Each year, for Passover
, I make macaroons. For the past few years I have been making the same
macaroon ( Martha Stewart Living Magazine
) recipe, but this year I wanted to try something different. Not that I don't like the old favorite, I wanted to experiment.
I was reading some food blogs on Tastespotting
and I read this fabulous blog ( I didn't bookmark and now can't find it-sorry) that inspired me to take out my very, very old Joy of Cooking
cookbook. After I found the recipe that I was hunting for, I starting recipe surfing. I stumbled upon some coconut macaroons that were oh so easy. I whipped up a batch.
They were DELICIOUS on their own, however I wanted to mix it up a bit. I made a simple chocolate glaze with some bittersweet chocolate, diluted espresso and some butter.
I made such a big batch of glaze that the remainder was used to make vanilla bean ice cream sundaes for the kids that evening. They didn't complain!
