Jessica Cale’s Chocolate Macarons

Jessica:

I love macarons. These gorgeous little French cookies are light, delicious, and you can make them in any color or flavor you can imagine. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I’m sharing the recipes for my favorite flavors and one of those is Chocolate & Bailey’s. I made these this weekend with my friend Jen in mind. Hot chocolate with Bailey’s in it was always our go-to drink in University and these indulgent macarons have the same taste with fewer calories (unless you eat them all. Not gonna lie, it could happen). Word of warning? They do take a little bit longer to make than hot chocolate…

Making macarons can be a little tricky at first, so before you start, I would really recommend looking up some tutorials so you know what everything is supposed to look along the way. Food Nouveau has one here that is incredibly helpful with extensive tips and a great troubleshooting guide. The Cupcake Project has another one with some great pictures here.
