30 Macaron Recipes for Your Confection-Lovin’ Sweet Tooth

In honor of Bastille Day on July 14th, we’ve decided to embrace all things French, starting with dessert (obviously). While we do love a good hunk o’ birthday cake, we appreciate that French confections are often small enough to satisfy sweet cravings without ruining our healthy eating habits. So say goodbye to that post-dessert guilty conscience! These 30 macarons recipes will have you feeling like you’re on cloud nine (or even the top of the Eiffel Tower).

1. Rose Macarons: Macarons and roses are two of the most ladylike things we can possibly think of, so it makes sense that they’d taste this wonderful together. Someone, please throw a tea party and serve these. (via Fraîche Ideas)

2. Chocolate + Nutella Macarons: It’s no secret that we’re all deeply in love with Nutella here at Brit + Co. This macaron is screamin’ our name. (via Cake and Allie)

3. Strawberry Macarons: Now that we’re right smack in the middle of the summer, these macarons would be a great way to showcase one of the season’s best fruits. (via Krissy’s Creations)

4. Pistachio + White Chocolate Macarons: Pistachios are one of the most flavorful and delicious nuts. For that reason, these macarons are obviously out of this world. (via Cake and Allie)

5. Salted Caramel Macarons: Who needs normal caramel when you’ve got salted caramel?! The salt balances the sweet taste so well. (via 52 Kitchen Adventures)

6. Lavender Macarons With Honey Buttercream: We love the pairing of honey and lavender because the honey adds that extra needed sweetness to the delicate floral flavor. This might be another macaron recipe to add to your tea party menu, ladies. (via The Tart Tart)

9. Strawberry Mint Macarons: This is probably the most refreshing macaron that has ever existed, flavor-wise. What a great post-BBQ summertime dessert. (via Whatever’s Left)

10. Pumpkin Pie Spice Macarons With Caramel Dark Chocolate Ganache + Smoked Sea Salt: It’s basically an unspoken rule in the culinary world that the longer the name of the dish is, the better it tastes. That being said, these macarons must be ridiculously tasty. (via Cupcake Project)

11. Meyer Lemon Macarons: Meyer lemons are said to be a cross between a regular lemon and an orange, so these macarons harness all the citrusy power they can. They’ve got that wonderful little bit of zing that citrus-based desserts have. (via Delectable Deliciousness)

12. Lime Coconut Macarons With White Chocolate Coconut Ganache: Speaking of citrus, check out these lime coconut macarons! Forget Paris — these will take you straight to that tropical beach you’ve been dreaming about. (via Kaloria)
