Everyone knows the conventional, tried-and-true Valentine’s Day gifts like chocolates in a heart-shaped box, jewelry that’s usually heart-shaped as well, flowers, and maybe a teddy bear if the gifter is feeling especially generous.
This year, though, try something new. Of course, macarons themselves are hardly new—the classic Macaron Parisien has been around since the 1830s. But, if you haven’t given the gift of smooth filling tucked between macaron shells, you don’t know what you and your special someone have been missing!
They taste like romance.
If you’ve never had a bakery-fresh macaron, you’re absolutely in for a treat. The French macaron is traditionally made of two meringue-like cookies, made with almond flour to support the inner filling. You’ll find that there’s one signature flavor to this kind of macaron shell, even when the colors change or the filling is substituted with another flavor. The macaron batter is naturally gluten-free as well, meaning many more sweet tooths can enjoy this delectable treat.
Even so, each macaron offers a light, airy taste and texture that can only be described as romantic. A talented pastry chef can transform that initial batter into a delicate dessert to which no other can compare.
Our French macaron recipe takes this art a step further, creating macarons that not only offer the cloud-like texture of the conventional macaron but we create a natural flavor to reflect a color or draw its inspiration from another treat. For instance, the pistachio macaron features real pistachio not just green food coloring, and the chocolate includes just the right amount of cocoa powder rather than brown coloring.
Everyone has a favorite flavor.
No matter who it is that you love, you’ll find the perfect macaron suited for other taste buds. For instance, it might be the Macaron Queen’s French-inspired take of an American classic: red velvet cake. This macaron features a cream cheese filling sandwiched between two cocoa-rich shells and, like its namesake inspiration, creates a delicious cake-like texture.
Perhaps your sweetheart is more fond of fruity flavors? They have plenty of options, too. The vanilla strawberry macaron, for example, offers a classic cookie texture and a gorgeous blush pink hue. The milky strawberry flavor is an undeniable fan-favorite, and for a real treat, try it frozen for a macaron that tastes just like ice cream.

Moreover, our popular macarons are even considered to be better than the originals from France. See for yourself!
