For a long time I have been fascinated by macaroons, although I've never actually had one. From their rainbow colours and perfect uniform shapes I am completely in awe.
Not a regular delicacy in Gosport... I had forgotten all about my love of macaroons until someone mentioned them at work, how their Parisian friend bought over a box with flavours such a liquorice (not my fave at all!) salted caramel, lemon, pistachio, raspberry etc. So, after a good nights sleep I spent the whole day googling macaroons. Here they are...
Due to my past failures at baking (see any previous posts for evidence!) I was extremely put off by making them as many see them as a 10/10 on the difficulty scale and are things treasured by foodies and fashionistas alike.
However, always one for a challenge, I have decided to make Exploding lemon Macaroons, with an added ingredient of popping candy :) So hurry up M..... bring back home my ingredients!!!
