Are you thinking about something a little different to bake for the holidays? French macarons could be the perfect thing to make. These would be great to have around the house, or to wrap up and give as gifts to friends and family. They are very impressive, but can be a little challenging to make if you have never made them before. Jessica at The Novice Chef has a great post (along with a recipe for fruity pebbles macarons, how fun!) with lots of tips and tricks on making perfect macarons.

Here’s 10 beautiful macarons, perfect for gift giving this holiday season.
