Is it macarons or macaroons?
For this gift idea, I’m referring to macarons, which are meringue based and come in a wide range of colors and flavors.
There are SO many colors and flavors to choose from which makes it fun to give someone a variety!
If you’ve never had a macaron, it’s a delicate cookie with two thin crusts and a filling made of either ganache, buttercream or fruit jam.
It’s also full of contrasts. A macaron packs huge flavor into a tiny baked goodie, and it’s somehow both rich and light at the same time.
They come in delicious flavors such as mint chocolate, cookies and cream, mojito, honey lavender, lemon tart, and piña colada. Is your mouth watering yet? Because I’m just scratching the surface on the different types of macaron flavors out there.
