I made macarons for my Mum’s work Christmas gifts last year and packaged them in plastic bag/sleeve things tied at the top with ribbon. I only did this the night before she gave them out but in that time they did not go soggy or anything like that? I’ve never really noticed a macaron giving off oil though.

@MexiPino:  Perhaps wax paper or parchment paper? The wax paper would definitely prevent oil stains, but it might not let the macaron “breathe.” The parchment paper would be an extra barrier between the macaron and kraft paper.

P.S. How much were the Trader Joe’s macarons?? They’re beautiful!

I’d think a layer of parchment paper would do the trick.

@MexiPino:  I would wrap them loosely (no need to suffocate them or wrap them 360) in wax paper and put them in the night before, or if you can on the morning. They look cute in their little package too 🙂

@MexiPino:  Oh duh! Those are Bottega Louie macarons – I think they sell for a couple dollars a piece. Twelve for $5 is a great deal! I’ll have to swing by my T Joe’s to see if I can pick up a little snack.
