I "Heart" Macaroons!

Are you all in the Valentine mood yet? I sure am... I got hearts in my mind! 

The last time I made macaroons I was so excited that they actually turned out, that I just had to try making them again... this time since Valentine's Day is around the corner I thought I would make them in the shape of a heart. 

Aren't they adorable? To make the heart, I just piped them out in a "V" shape.

Seriously could they be any cuter? This time I used a chocolate ganache filling.... sooooo yummy! 

Here is the recipe I used:

4 large egg whites (or 5 small – 140g (4.94 ounces))
1/3 cup caster sugar (70g (2.47 ounces))
1 1/2 cups icing sugar (230g (8.11 ounces))
1 cup almond meal (120g (4.23 ounces))
2g (0.07 ounces) salt (tiny pinch)
gel food colouring (optional)
