Our Macaron Questions
What is a French Macaron? A French Macaron is a meringue-based cookie made with egg whites, sugar, and almonds. Macarons are commonly filled with buttercream or ganache between two cookies. The confectionery is characterized by its smooth, domed top and ruffled circumference (referred to as the "foot").
How should I store my macarons? If you are waiting to enjoy your French macarons a few hours past their delivery, we recommend storing them in the refrigerator (preferably in an airtight container). For best results, our macarons should be consumed within 5 days of delivery. Let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. If you need longer-term storage, our macarons can be frozen for up to a month and can be served after standing at room temperature for 1-2 hours.
Are your macarons gluten-free? Yes, Nikkolette's Macarons are made with gluten-free ingredients!
Is your kitchen entirely wheat-free? No. While our macarons are gluten-free, Nikkolette's Macarons are made in a commercial kitchen that handles wheat products.
Are your macarons dairy-free? No, all of our fillings contain cream and butter.
Are your macarons Vegan? No. Nikkolette's Macarons are made with traditional French methods which use egg whites to make a fluffy meringue for the shells. All of our fillings contain cream or butter.
Are your macarons Kosher? Not at this time.
If I have a nut allergy, should I eat Nikkolette's Macarons? No. Unfortunately, we are NOT a nut-free kitchen. Our macarons are made with almonds/almond flour. Some of our flavors also contain peanuts, pistachios and hazelnuts. We recommend that customers with nut allergies do not consume our macarons.
