Minted Chocolate Macarons

« Jules »,  Lovely French Macarons

When it comes to chocolate I only use the best, Valrhona, for the ganache.  I use a handful of fresh mint to infuse with the cream, providing a more natural mint flavor. Featured in the photo are Valrhona chocolate shavings and fresh mint from our garden. Deliseux!

Lovely French Macarons

For those of you who follow my Facebook page, “French For A While”, you have enjoyed seeing all the posts of my French Macarons, “Jules“, named after my Parisian daughter and because I’ve always thought they appeared like little jewels in the pastry shop cases in Paris.  This French-style cookie is spelled with only one “o” and pronounced mah-kah-rhon. French macarons have become my passion and I teach hands-on classes in the greater Atlanta area. Follow my blog for occasional recipes and delightful photos of my “Jules”, Lovely French Macarons.
