Yum! Any holiday that encourages you to eat copious amounts of sweet treats is definitely going to be a favourite in Casa de Stuff. Saying I have a sweet tooth is like saying Justin Beiber is moderately popular with the female 10-16 demo.
A couple of weeks ago Lindt sent me a box of Hot Cross Bun Macarons and before I even had the chance to photograph them the box was pillaged (see left).
Holy frick on a stick they are GOOD. I’m not normally a macaron fan, but the mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and buttery white chocolate ganache was just too heady to resist. If Lindt were trying to recreate the amazing taste of butter melting onto a fresh hot cross bun (funnily enough, they were) then they succeeded.
So after the first box got nailed, I went back and bought more. Not just for me (okay, some were for me) but they made excellent gifts too. Come to think of it, I probably should have told you about them earlier so you could have bought a box to take over to your Aunty’s place today to reaffirm your place in the family as everyone’s favourite. Sorry. Next time, I promise!
