croquembouche is a classic French pastry that is so delicious, you just want to eat it all summer long. The croquembouche is a simple mixture of flour, butter, sugar, eggs, and sometimes chopped nuts, salt and some spices.
The most notable part about croquembouche is that it’s the only thing that you can make that won’t taste like crap. This is so amazing that it’s actually a thing. You’ll never go out to dinner and realize you wanted to eat croquembouche.
Croquembouche, along with the other classic French pastries, is one of the very few food items that can be used on a salad. So you can throw it on salad greens or throw it on a croque monsieur. Its a great way to use up leftover ingredients that can’t be used up.
