Valentine's Day Love Sprinkle Macarons Recipe
* macarons - freshly filled
* festive valentine sprinkles
* wilton cookie icing or royal icing in a piping bag with a small round tip (#3-5)
Place sprinkles in a small dish (i just use a measuring 1/2 cup), roll the edge of the macaron in the sprinkles so that all of the edges are covered.
Use the icing and create your desired shape while still wet, dip into sprinkles or shake sprinkles onto the icing use the toothpick to manuver the icing and sprinkles into a more precise shape.
iIcreated this set of heart and "love" macarons but it would be so cute to have "XOXO" or spell out "i love you" have fun and be creative! Can't you just see this for so many other occasions? I can. and you will probably see them soon ;)
