On the 12th Day of Christmas,
Came Minty Macarons…
You may never catch a glimpse of the jolly old man in red, and the question of whether or not reindeer can fly will remain just that, but with one bite of Trader Joe's 12 Peppermint Macarons, you will personally experience the heretofore unknown place where fine French pastry meets good old-fashioned American ingenuity.
Each macaron features two naturally peppermint-flavored cookies that are simultaneously chewy (inside) and crispy (outside). The cookies are sandwiched together with a chocolate ganache filling that’s spiked with just a bit of cool peppermint. They're easy to keep in the freezer, and if you put them out to defrost before dinner, they'll be ready to enjoy by the time you're ready for dessert. We're selling each 4.2 ounce box of 12 Peppermint Macarons for $4.99, a sweet price.
