Macarons are tricky little buggers.

Dude, SCRAPBOOK PAGES. Best backgrounds ever!

Sometimes they fail just to be mean, I think.

Tiny food rules.

Even when all the conditions are perfect, I imagine them giggling amongst themselves in the oven, plotting how they’re going to disappoint me.

These are on a saucer.

So what do you do when your cocoa macarons with a cacao nib sprinkling refuse to develop feet while baking?

Mmm, snacky.

Mmm, snacky.

Leave them in the oven for a couple extra minutes until they brown a little and eat your tasty Mini Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies with a shotglass of milk.

Oh, meringue...why you gotta be so temperamental?

No recipe included, since this was a freak macaron occurence and you very well might succeed in getting feet if you try to replicate my results. But I do recommend baking cacao nibs in meringue. Between this and the pavlova, I think I have a new obsession.

And I will get the macarons right soon!

  1. Oh I know! Aren’t they the most temperamental buggers! I wonder if there’s a macaron prayer that one has to say before making them or a good luck ritual lol

    Even when they don’t work, they still taste great, don’t they! :)

    These are so cute! I think they’re even better than what you intended to make. After all, it’s something wonderful that happened by accident. And in cooking and in baking, sometimes the greatest things are created through mishaps, mistakes, or unintended actions.

    If I ever try to make macarons I have a feeling I’ll now think they are giggling at me!

    I don’t know, they still look graet to me. Like Y said, I’m sure they still tasted great.

    it’s always so sad when macarons don’t develop feet…the first peek is always so tense! great save though, these are still darn cute.
