Cookie Monster Macarons

Cookie Monster Macarons

“C is for cookie and cookie is for me” Cookie Monster.

Featuring the mini chocolate chip cookies I shared yesterday, here’s my version of the blue cookie loving monster. As it’s hard to get dark hue on macaron shells I did not achieve the navy blue look but they turned pretty adorable anyway.

These fellows are filled with Nutella, but any ganache will work too. Here’s a little video of the assembling, hope you’ll like it. 🙂
