To accompany a caramel macaron, here are some suggestions for taste pairings that will highlight its delicacy:
While classic, coffee is still a common match with caramel, because the roasted and slightly bitter aromas of coffee blend perfectly with the sweet sweetness of caramel. Opt for a rich, full-bodied espresso, or try a softer coffee like a caramel latte for an irresistible combination.
Caramel and chocolate form a delicious and irresistible combination. Opt for a square of a high-quality dark or milk chocolate bar and enjoy it with your caramel macaron. The rich and deep aromas of chocolate will enhance the flavor of caramel, creating a harmony of tastes in your palate.
Nuts such as hazelnuts, almonds or cashews offer a crunchy texture and a slightly toasted flavor that contrasts nicely with the sweetness of caramel. You can enjoy the caramel macaron with crushed nuts or serve whole nuts next door for a complementary tasting experience.
Finally, if you like more daring pairings, pair your caramel macaron with a quality whisky or bourbon. The woody, smoky and sometimes caramelized notes of these spirits blend well with the caramel flavor, creating a complex and warm tasting experience.
