A special baking challenge
Macaroons are very delicate thanks to their meringue-based confection. A refined and delicate dessert, with a French heart and a tempting shape.

Fill the sweet with Nutella, right between two halves, and you will have something classy and tasteful. Last but not least, a beautiful tray of macarons will make the perfect treat as a Christmas gift.
