High-Class Hybrid Desserts

The Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich is a Delectable Dessert by Chef Payard

— August 9, 2013 — Lifestyle
For a delicious treat of two crowd-favorite desserts, try a macaron ice cream sandwich made by Chef Payard.

Separate, both of these treats taste amazing, so together the combination looks absolutely mouth-watering. While desserts are automatically assumed to be extremely savory, this dessert is also aesthetically appealing. The macarons themselves are featured here in vibrant red, yellow, green and chocolate brown, and there are a variety of ice cream flavor fillers. The best part about these treats is if you do decide to make your own, you can choose any macaron and ice cream flavors you like!

This dessert is perfect for impressing and satisfying guests at an outdoor BBQ, as not only are they scrumptious, but also a perfect way to beat the heat.
