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)


Click here to see where the recipe came from and all the tips and tricks to make the perfect French Macaroon. Ann walks you through every possibility!

Hope you enjoyed my heart mac's, I know I did!
