Oh yeah, check out these babies! Every time K goes to Zurich, he brings home a box of Luxemburgerli made by Confiserie Sprüngli in Zurich
(Switzerland). Essentially a small macaron, they have a top and bottom sugar-based confection with a center cream filling. The Luxemburgerli is lighter than a macaron and is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter. Since I never go for fruity flavors when it comes to macarons, K picked a couple of flavors he knew I would like.
Mocha – A deliciously aromatic mocha cream, refined with a hint of vanilla.
Champagne Gold – Exquisite gold Luxemburgerli with white chocolate and a dash of Perrier-Jouet champagne.
Champagne Deluxe – The classic champagne filling, complemented by a sophisticated centre featuring Perrier-Jouet champagne. My absolute favorite of the bunch.
Vanilla – A light and airy mini-macaron filled with an elegant vanilla cream and bourbon vanilla seeds.
Caramel/Fleur de Sel – Luxemburgerli with delicious caramel and a hint of Fleur de Sel.
Chocolate – A light and airy mini macaroni with a strong chocolate filling. Oh this chocolate was so rich!
You can find Luxemburgerli at Confiserie Sprüngli.
