Chocolate Macarons, but not as we know them, Jim

Awards Plus | 13th October 2012 | By

Now who would have thought the perfect chocolate macarons would ever feature on my blog? Not me for sure, Gallic sophistication is hardly my style. I can and have made some very tasty chocolate macaroons, but not something that looks as elegant and polished as these French macarons.

I knew I couldn’t fool you for long. I must have done something right recently as I have just won these chocolate macaron earrings from Jill of Mad About Macarons. From across the Channel, these have travelled all the way from that well known capital of haute cuisine, Paris. They arrived beautifully packaged and were well protected, wrapped in the pretty floral cloth shown above. Made by Patricia Bourdell of the French Bakery, these charming earrings are not only fantastic replicas of chocolate macarons, but are also made with 14 carat gold. The French Bakery specialises in necklaces, earrings, rings and other jewellery inspired by French bakes.

Lady luck has been on my side in the past few months as evinced by the following wins:

    Wow, you really have been lucky this week. I was just happy to discover I’d had a comment published in Tesco Mag P11 unbeknownst to me (from web) and was contacted out of blue to say I’d won some fake tan, LOL.

    They do look rather splendid, Choclette. So glad the chocolate macs found a good chocolatey home! And for the other wins? Gosh, lady luck indeed. Bravo!
