This is what you do with left over macaroons…..
“What do you mean by ‘left over’ macaroons?” I hear you ask. I concur. It’s the same concept as left over wine or having some Cadbury’s Bubbly chocolate left in the wrapper. Ludicrous.
Anyhow, say you find yourself with some extra macaroons (a hostess gift or in my case a gift from a local baker’s parents), and you can’t get to eating them all before they start to dry out, this is what you can do with those macs. I’m not saying use outright stale macaroons, but those just about getting on will be perfect. Make milkshake.
If you make macaroons and they come out less than perfect, this is delightful way to crumble up those mistakes and transform them into a decadent milkshake.
The recipe is so simple, it isn’t worth setting it out step-by-step. Here’s what you need: 1 part milk, 1 part ice cream of your choice, blended. So for 125 ml milk and 125 ml ice cream, I would crumble two standard size macaroons into the milkshake and blend again for a few seconds. I made these milkshakes using my Dutch Christmassy speculaas ice cream and vanilla ice cream. Add more macaroons if you prefer. Serve and enjoy immediately.
