I know it's January - and likelihood is that you have chosen a dry, plant-based, low calorie or super active existence ( or, good luck to you, perhaps all of the above!) for this month of self-imposed penance for all the excesses of December. However, we are already halfway through the long 31days - so I'm sure everyone deserves a small treat - just to boost the resolve to get us through to the end.
Irish cream is one of those essentials on my Christmas grocery list - everybody's favourite, I am ensured - but, despite all best efforts, come January 1st we always have a fair amount left over and obviously it languishes in the fridge as we deny ourselves anything remotely creamy, alcoholic or calorific! So creating a macaron that might help towards using it up - and I do hate waste - was the obvious answer.
The result was a very grown up macaron - combining a delectable coffee-flavoured macaron shell with a velvety, finger-licking white chocolate and Irish cream ganache! Relax and enjoy with a flat white - or a sneaky Irish cream coffee - delicious! Worth waiting for if you're determined to see the month through under penitential conditions!
