Brioche Pasquier macarons
- Available from Ocado (£15)
It's hard to find really good macarons on the high street, but French family bakery Brioche Pasquier has perfected their recipe to a tee. We love the crisp shell and just-right chewy centre, with natural-tasting fillings piped beautifully in the middle.
This pâtisserie range includes six flavours of macarons (raspberry, lemon, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and pistachio) and comes in a generous box of 36 (great value for the price) – so plenty for both you and mum.
