After I tracked down all the ingredients I got to work. It took about an hour to mix everything up and bake them. Surprisingly, they turned out great. Most of the macaroons cracked, but I blame that on my using a make-shift piping bag out of a sandwich baggy.
Here are the results. So tasty!
My twist: I used Nutella for the filling instead of the chocolate ganache from this video.
PS- I have a new found respect for food photographers.
