The History Of National Chocolate Macaroon Day
Macaroons are small biscuits or cakes that are generally made from ground almonds or other nuts, coconut, sugar, egg whites and sometimes flavoring (such as chocolate). They’re shaped into small round shapes and then baked. Sometimes they’re filled with a ganache or jam, sometimes buttercream, and sometimes nothing at all.
But the modern macaroon is a lot different than the ones that were made when this dessert was first invented. The first macaroons are believed to have been created by monks during the middle ages. These macaroons were made from almond paste, egg whites, and sugar and they were often served to guests as a symbol of hospitality.
Over the centuries, the macaroon would begin to change as it passed through France, Italy, and Switzerland. Of course, chocolate wasn’t around to make chocolate macaroons during the Medieval period. At least, not in Europe. No, for that delicious treat, people would have to wait until the 19th century.
This is when chocolate macaroons became widely available. It didn’t take them long to travel across the entirety of Europe and then eventually be brought into the U.S. Now, chocolate macaroons are universally available and ready to tantalize the taste buds of anyone who tries them.
Many people who might be reading this history of the chocolate macaroon might be wondering exactly when National Chocolate Macaroon Day began. Well, it looks like these people might have to keep wondering. That’s because we could find no evidence of when this holiday was created or who was behind its creation.
