Pretty self-explanatory, uh ? Here’s the pic…..
This is the last recipe in this difficulty group of 2 Macarons. Next one up will be in the harder category of 2 1/2 macarons. I again was not quite sure why this one was labeled with this degree of difficulty, unless maybe they considered the chocolate curls and the caramelized malted barley décor on top as the difficult part. The coffee ice cream was pretty straight-forward. Easy to make in my little 2 quart electric ice cream maker. The Chocolate Stout beer they called for was a little difficult to find, as was the malted barley for making the brittle. Other than that, not too hard. I am not a beer drinker, but if I were—coffee ice cream definitely helps !!! Mine….
The only Chocolate Stout we could find here was Oscar’s Chocolate Oatmeal Stout…brewed right here in Wisconsin. It had a real sharpness to it which was offset by the ice cream. Also packed quite a punch !
