Chocolate Macaroons with Lucuma Mousse

Chocolate Macaroons with Lucuma Mousse

Who doesn’t love a sweet dessert after a copious dinner? Macaroons are French delights but they make a beautiful and sophisticated dessert when combined with lucuma mousse. This Peruvian fruit has a bright orange color and a very original flavor and perfume that we love in desserts or in milkshakes. If you don’t find the fresh ones, lucuma flour is a good substitution. A while ago this recipe was posted as a part of the Thanksgiving celebration but I think it’s a great idea to have it on the Christmas table. Try it and you will be the queen (or king) of desserts.
