Snickers' Macarons?!

I was wondering what to leave you peeps for the weekend...I have been busy this week, and has not been able to attempt any new recipes....so, maybe you can make this macarons!

I made this using the one egg white macaron recipe. Think the original recipe came from Jill Colonna's book, which I have divided and meddled as usual, hehe.... and because the theme for Mactweet's mac-attack-19-ballpark-snacks , was all about a ball game...I thought of adding Kacang Tumbuk (as I call it, Roasted Peanuts combined with caramel and crushed and made into small cubes) into the batter (I added 1 teaspoon into the almond icing sugar mix), sprinkled on the shells and added also in the chocolate ganache and a dollop of Italian meringue buttercream. Kacang Tumbuk is a type of peanut titbit that you usually find from any corner shop or any grocery shops here or particularly the Chineses grocery shops overseas....and the best part, I didn't think that it would turn out to taste like eating a Snicker bar! I haven't been to any ballgame, by the way!

I used  fresh egg white and the French meringue method to make this macaron, think they are more authentic, but very finicky! Hubs loved this macarons, and prefers macarons using the French meringue compared to the Italian meringue method!

So...here's my version of Snickers' Macarons for MacTweet No. 19!
Instead of colouring the shell, I decided to create a marble effect!
The Kacang Tumbuk (crushed peanuts) are wrapped in paper like this!
Have a productive weekend peeps...I will!Keep well!

I LOVE it! Snickers macarons. Just brilliant. Love the marble effect, too. That peanut paste looks just too mouthwatering! Thanks for mentioning the book - as you can see, I'm a huge French meringue fan, as I don't like playing around with thermometers! Bravo - your macarons are fabulous.

The marble effect is very creative. And Snickers flavor makes your macarons very yummy!
