Whether you call them macaroons or French macarons, these tiny treats make special occasions at home delicious

I can’t resist a macaro(o)n. There’s something about that delicate balance between crispy shell and squidgy almond centre, coupled with this French fancy’s ability to take on different flavours, that seduces me every time. Not sure how to make macaroons? Step forward our macaroon selection, available in store. With six flavours to choose from, including white chocolate and praline, and dark chocolate, they’re ideal as petits fours with coffee post lunch and go equally well with a glass of fizz in the sunshine. Plus they make a sweet gift when placed in a pretty box with ribbon; they’ll look great alongside your place settings, or as grown-up goodie bags when your guests head home.
