mini macs

Last month, when we got together for FIL's memorial service.

We received a box of sweets from MIL as a "thank you".

Inside, were these coffee flavored macaron outsides.

They were quite teeny. Mini macs if you will.

Maybe an inch in diameter.

I melted some dark chocolate and tried putting them in the middle.

Because the chocolate was thin and liquidy, it didn't have that "umph" factor.

And with the mac outsides being coffee, the whole thing was quite bitter.

So, I scooped some peanut butter chocolate spread that I had in my refridge.

And voila! A mini macaron.

The outside of the macaron was crispy though I am more used to the chewy type.

We'll be enjoying these for awhile.

You could thicken your chocolate with butter, as if you were making butter frosting... Oh right expensive butter.
You could whip up some mousse.

It looks like you've got it covered... With peanut butter. Bon-appetit.
