Happy Christmas Everyone!!! Hope you’re all having an amazing day!!! Looking for something to do with the children this afternoon? Look no further – these are so easy, made with simple ingredients and everyone can join in making them even on Christmas Day!  

Almond Macaroons

To steal a phrase from my niece ‘I love love, love, these macaroons!!! They are just melt-in-the-mouth delectable and so so sooooooooo easy to make. I’m not kidding they are literally four ingredients that you mix up in a bowl - pop in the oven for 8 mins and you’re done. You can spend the rest of you afternoon watching PAW Patrol – or even something made for adults!

It’s a great one for the kids to join in on mainly because it’s so simple plus you won’t have much washing up at the end – especially once they’ve finished scraping the bowl!

I’ve always been a massive fan of almond macaroons – a proper old fashion British treat I can’t pass up! I didn’t this time but you can add a flaked almond – or even a whole one – to the top of each macaroon.
