For many, Easter is a time of spiritual celebration and renewal that comes with the arrival of spring each year.
While there are many ways to celebrate it, one commonality all of them share is the inclusion of sweet treats.
And for sweet treats, few have the history (and devotion) of macarons!
If you spend any amount of time on our site, you’ll know that we blog about macarons constantly – it’s one of our true passions!
So when it came to putting together a list of Easter macaron flavors, we covered everything from classic flavors to more unique options. We’ve got some super fun ideas for Easter-themed macarons you’re going to love!
To be sure, it’s a little bit of everything, so without further delay, let’s get started.
Classic Easter Macaron Flavors
First up on our list of Easter flavors are what many might consider “classics'”. Among these are chocolate and peanut butter (eggs anyone?) and carrot cake. Along with those, a couple of fruity favs in strawberry and raspberry that are perfect any time of year but especially at Easter.
Chocolate Macarons with Peanut Butter Filling
If you love the combo of chocolate and peanut butter, then there’s a good chance you’ve enjoyed the classic chocolate Easter egg. I don’t know about you but for me, those tasty treats were always a sign that Easter was fast approaching.
While candy Easter eggs might not be on the menu this year, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy that same delightful flavor in a refined and elegant manner. Of course, what’s more refined than a macaron like this decadent chocolate and peanut butter recipe coming to you from Broma Bakery.
Strawberry Jelly Macarons
Even if you’re not a fan of chocolate, the ever-present spring favorite of peanut butter jelly sandwiches is something that still brings a smile to many faces.
In this recipe from Sugar, Spice and Glitter, strawberry jelly takes center stage in this delightful rose macaron recipe. Not only is it easy but the result is a cookie shell reminiscent of Easter eggs making it fun and festive!
Carrot Cake Macarons
Carrot cake is a classic Easter dessert. The nuttiness of the carrots pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the cream cheese icing. It’s both rich and refreshing at the same time making it ideal not only for Easter but also as a scrumptious macaron!
That’s right carrot cake lovers, get ready to take your love for this tasty treat to a whole new level with this carrot cake macaron recipe from Jen Around the World.
White Chocolate Raspberry Macarons
Another fruity staple that’s long been associated with Easter is the delightfully light and refreshing raspberry. It’s naturally sweet, yet tart which makes it a perfect pairing for chocolate – especially the creamy decadence of white chocolate.
If the idea of combining these two scrumptious sweets together appeals to you, then so will this insanely delicious recipe for white chocolate raspberry macarons!
