Macarons are everywhere lately! It seems you can’t peruse a food blog without seeing a yummy looking version of these continental sweets. But this has got to be the cleverest version I’ve seen so far. The Big Mac Macaron!
If you’re not familiar with the Macaron, it’s a french pastry made with egg whites and almond paste… a good description and history can be found here at Serious Eats

Today is no ordinary macaron day, so I wanted to do something extra special. Now that Spring has arrived (at least it has here in Southern California!), my thoughts have been turning to picnics, and outdoor barbecues. So today’s macarons are inspired by those thoughts and the most recent Mac Tweets challenge. I’ve affectionately named them “Big Macs” (pun intended). I sprinkled the “buns” with sesame seeds. The hamburger patties are made from chocolate ganache, and the lettuce and tomato are made from the white chocolate plastic (with red and green food coloring kneaded in it). Ok, enough talking, I’m craving a Big Mac. I’m off to celebrate!
