A Sweet Lesson: Macaroons vs. Macarons

A “sweet” look at some tasty treats from the Disney Parks Blog…..

Macaroons vs. Macarons

As you can see, there is a bit more artistry and technique involved with the French macaron. Both varieties are equally tasty – just in different ways! Here’s where you can find each variety at Walt Disney Parks & Resorts.
