Shopping list.
(Make 12 medium or 24 mini macarons)
♥ Two egg whites, at room temperature
♥ 75g caster sugar
♥ 80g icing sugar, sieved
♥ 10g good quality cocoa powder

For the Malteser buttercream
♥ 100g unsalted butter
♥ 200g icing sugar
♥ 60g Maltesers, crushed  (There are 37g in a bag but that means two bag, plus an extra treat for the chef)
♥ A drop of milk or water if the mix is too thick

Step one. Make the buttercream ahead by whipping together the ingredients. Use an electric balloon whisk for 10 minutes for extra thick and fluffy buttercream. Set aside.

Step two.  Make basic macarons using this handy macaron recipe guide. As these have a chocolate shell, add in the cocoa powder with the icing sugar. You also omit the food colouring from this one as the cocoa powder colours the macarons brown.

Step three. Pipe in the Malteser buttercream and twist the shells together to make a complete macaron. Enjoy!
