Macarons are tricky little buggers.
Sometimes they fail just to be mean, I think.
Even when all the conditions are perfect, I imagine them giggling amongst themselves in the oven, plotting how they’re going to disappoint me.
So what do you do when your cocoa macarons with a cacao nib sprinkling refuse to develop feet while baking?
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.
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!
