Chocolate Dipped Macaron

I’ve never heard of a chocolate dipped macaron, but I stopped by Columbus Circle’s Bouchon and stopped in my tracks as soon as I saw it glistening in the display. There were a few flavors available, including caramel and chocolate. I chose pumpkin, since I love fall flavors and pumpkin. Here’s a picture of the hockey-puck sized monstrosity:

It is absolutely divine. The chocolate coating was really thick – maybe a full 2 milimeters thick, revealing the macaron inside. You can’t tell how well-made the shell is since the usual flaky crunchiness was masked by the chocolate. The chocolate was still “crunchy” though in the way that chilled chocolate dipped things usually are. The pumpkin flavor was still really vibrant though and paired surprisingly well with chocolate. Shell aside, the crumbly delicate rich texture of the macaron was still amazing and I am now a fan.

    The chocolate is too thick, so it might overwhelm the taste of the pumpkin inside, at some point. But the chocolate is so good though. Thumbs Up.
