SparklesMacaron Etsy Shop Giveaway

Macarons are absolutely my new favorite sweet treat.  I discovered them last Christmas in a chocolate shop near my home.  The round little pieces of heaven are just scrumptious.  The first macaron I ever tried was gingerbread.  I was simply hooked! For your next party, instead of serving cookies or brownies, let macarons be the center of your dessert table.



SparklesMacaron's Etsy shop is based out of a small kitchen in California.  Store owner Karen creates this French based treat, which is a sweet meringue-based confection made with eggs, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder and food coloring. The macaron is sandwiched between butter cream, ganache, or jam filling in a range of different flavors.

Karen's flavor list includes the following flavors:
Dark chocolate
Pistachio
Passion fruit ganache
Raspberry
Salted Caramel
Sumiyaki coffee
Rose
Earl grey
Coconut
Madagascar vanilla
Japanese plum

It is best to enjoy the yummies a day or two after receiving them for optimal taste. Store them in your fridge upon receiving.  When you're ready to serve, remove them from the fridge and let them sit at room temperature 15-30 minutes before serving.

SparklesMacaron is pleased to allow a lucky winner the chance to win a box of a dozen macarons!
