8 Things To Do With Macarons For Bastille Day, Because There's No Better Way To Celebrate The French

Happy Bastille Day, my fellow Francophiles! Can you think of any better way to celebrate the French national holiday than with a handful of dainty, delicious, and decadent macarons? Of course you can't — but before you hop over to Laduree to order up a dozen (or two dozen) of your French favorites, consider trying these other things to do with macarons. Eat 'em on a cake, turn 'em into s'mores, or crumble 'em up into cupcake toppings. It might not necessarily be the Parisian way, but it still is darn delicious.
