But the macaroon is a rare exception to my dislike of Passover sweets. As you know, I swear by Ina Garten's coconut macaroon recipe, which I posted last Friday. Despite its deliciousness, I was thinking of ways to dress the recipe up a bit and make it my own.
Sprinkles. Why didn't I ever think of that before?
Sprinkles make the macaroons pretty. They make them a little crunchy. Sprinkles are like an instant party. Sprinkles make macaroons special.
Look at these macaroons.
I could sell them.
Maybe I will.
Now I'm on a roll. What else can I roll macaroons in? Nuts? Finely ground toasted coconut a la those coconut marshmallows that Kate can eat by the bagful? Drizzle them with white and dark chocolate? Caramel?
The world is my oyster. (Pardon the non-Kosher reference.)
I could go into business and make a million dollars. Or at least I could cover my costs, which would make Ted very happy.
