It's highly unlikely that you won't fall in love with this yummy French delicacy once you dive into their creamy centre, covered with an almond sugar shell. Macaroons have gained immense popularity thanks to TV shows such as Gossip Girl, and the fame is well-deserved – they're pure luxury, and can transport you to your very own imaginary sidewalk café in Paris with every bite.
If you are looking for a non-regrettable sugar rush, try this delightful delicacy which is absolute perfection for a midday treat. For a modern update on the usual box of chocolates, try giving them as a gift – which will probably secure you a lifetime of friendship!
