Dulcey Blond Chocolate Macarons

Dulcey Blond Chocolate Macarons

Macarons with a dulcey blond-chocolate ganache. The taste is like shortbread and caramelized white chocolate.

Dulcey blonde from Valrhona is insanely delicious! Until now I have made a Dulcey Blond chocolate truffle, Dulcey Blonde Ice Cream (recipe coming soon) & now Dulcey Blond macarons. Dulcey Blond is a very expensive chocolate and so I use it wisely (and hide it from my boyfriend, so it’s still there when I need it;) ). Therefore, it is a very “clean” taste with no disturbing flavors added. I used an ordinary white chocolate ganache recipe and swapped the white chocolate with Dulcey Blonde, it gave a super delicious caramelized creamy Dulcey Blond ganache with characteristic shortbread taste. The Caramel Macaron shells are from the “Baroque Bistro” and has a light caramel flavor that fits super well with the Dulcey Blond ganache. Bon appetite! Should there be a beginner out there who throw themselves into the macaron-challenge and will need my help, then write me a comment and I will answer asap. I’ll do what I can
