UofO french macarons
Happy New Year everyone!
Today the (University of Oregon) Ducks are playing against Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. For the big game I wanted to make a special little treat. At Christmas I made the peppermint macarons (see the "Christmas Macarons" post) and my dad had the great idea of making them yellow and green for the Ducks! There are quite a few Ducks in our family and my parents were heading down to Pasadena for the game. So, I thought I'd make these macarons for them to take down for the game.
I used the same recipe I've been using for the macarons and just like the peppermint and snowmen macarons I divided the batter and colored one batch yellow and the other green. Using green edible marker I drew an "O" on the yellow macarons. For the green ones I used black edible marker and wrote "Go! Ducks" on them. All the macarons are filled with dark chocolate ganache. These were really fun to make and I hope everyone enjoys them.
Update: The Ducks pulled through today! It was a tough game but in the end we "won the day". It's a good day to be a DUCK!
