105 : Macaron


A Macaron or Macaroon is:

"A macaron is a confectionery whose name is derived from an Italian word “maccarone” or "maccherone". This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient..[1] It is meringue-based: made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and both granulated and confectionery sugar."
From the mighty Wiki.

Got off work with the weirdest crave to have macaroons! I really enjoy their taste, so went & got me some from Chocolate and Macaroon cafe. Not the best but it was on the way, the killer ones are: the Nutella - Dark Chocolate :>

The one above is with KitKat filling, it was not so nice. But I loved the contrast between the raspberry redo color and the brown color :p
