These macarons were inspired by my favorite “I just need a little chocolate” treat. Trader Joes dark chocolate almonds with turbinado sugar and sea salt. If you haven’t tried them, you need to! For the patisserie version of these treats, chocolate macaron shells are dip in dark chocolate and sprinkled with turbinado sugar and flaked sea salt. Then, filled with dark chocolate almond ganache and sliced almond pieces.
This easy no bake dessert combines vanilla bean mascarpone filling with layers of cinnamon spiced buttered rum soaked Nilla Wafers, banana slices, and candied walnuts. It's little bit of banana pudding, tiramisu, bananas foster and a whole lot of delicious all rolled into one no bake dessert.
