Francois Chocolate Bar Macaron with cocoa nibs

In my book, more than 7 or 8 distinct comments on one post makes for a true, viral sensation.  I would even call the reaction to my Financier post a genuine kerfuffle.  It’s interesting how much New Yorkers have to say about macarons.  They might just be the next cupcakes.

As I mentioned last week, I have been trying a few macarons each day from a number of different bakeries to really  get a feel for which ones taste best and are most likely to be fresh.  I stopped by Francois Chocolate bar to score a dark chocolate macaron with nibs.  I’m happy to report it was very soft and fresh and the dark chocolate actually tasted dark.  The nibs were a bonus.  $2.25 at the Francois Chocolate Bar in the Plaza food court.
