There is so much sugar in macarons! How much calories is there in a macaron?

There is so much sugar in macarons! How much calories is there in a macaron?

Macarons aren’t exactly diet-friendly. After a quick research online, I’d estimate that one average 1¼-inch macarons contains about 200 calories. The powdered sugar is necessary to the macaron’s texture – and considering most macarons are assembled with buttercreams or fruit jams, it’s a treat you should indulge in with moderation, but savor with a slow appreciation of its texture and flavors. Indeed, you’ll never see Parisians scarfing down macarons! Don’t try to make macarons lighter; eat just one and enjoy it.

But not fine enough that you don’t have to sift it again. It’s a chore, but sifting the powdered sugar and nut mixture one last time will be worth the effort and ensure a smooth macaron shell.
