This dessert was light and not too sweet. It finished with strong hints of cinnamon. It was served warm with a sticky glaze and reminded us of apple pie filling (perfect for this time of year!) If you don’t like chunks of cooked apple, then this may not be for you, but we liked it!

Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Macaron (Gluten-Friendly) – $5.50

Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Macaron (Gluten-Friendly) – $5.50

This item was previously at Merry Mashups in 2018. The Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Macaron was a pretty tasty treat and as a bonus treat for some is gluten friendly. The marshmallows added a nice extra texture, but the white chocolate “flame” crumbled almost instantly for us, so chances are you’ll break it easily like we did which means it isn’t as photogenic, but it still tastes the same.

Mimosa Flight – $17.00

We got this flight on a whim, and we’re a bit sorry that we did. The cranberry one was our favorite of the bunch, and that’s not saying a lot as it tasted mostly like champagne. The pomegranate reminded us of cough syrup, and we wouldn’t get that one again. The apple was just alright.
