Allo allo! I’m in London right now, a bit jetlagged from my overnight flight but super excited to be here for the Doctor Who Celebration/convention next week!
I’ve already thrown one “Doctor Who” party in the office, but I wanted to try a couple more Whovian treats before my trip, just in case people are looking for ideas on what to serve at a 50th anniversary viewing party.
Since I’ve been fixated on macarons, I made some Chocolate Sylverster McCoyarons filled with the milk chocolate ganache that Chocolatique evangelizes. The name isn’t nearly as slick as my Hanson-themed “Zacarons” but they were gobbled up just as quickly.
Post vacation I’ll get to writing up a macaron post, but for now I’ll just say that everything I know I learned from the blog Brave Tart. Go read it.
Oh, and if your macarons crack, as sometimes happens, you can call them Crack In the Wall Macarons, right?
I also made some Rude and Not Ginger Chocolate Chip Bars. People raved about the sweet and spicy taste combination in these and they were quick and easy to whip up, especially compared to the macarons. Get the recipe from Real Simple.
Have a look at my first post on Baking for Doctor Who if you haven’t already and let me know what creations you’ve come up with. Has anyone figured out what Ood Food might look like?
