Macarons are all the rage right now — they are even considered one of the most iconic desserts of the 2010s. Reputed to be one of the most difficult desserts to make, they are often sold for a pretty penny, often $2 a piece.

However, they really aren’t as difficult as they seem, especially if you follow these tips for perfect double chocolate macarons. Plus, these are fantastic for Valentine’s Day, especially if you don’t have a Valentine of your own — invite a few friends and make them together. And, honestly, piping a cute (and festive) heart shape is almost easier than creating the classic perfectly round cookie.
