As far back as I can recall, I loved peanut butter. So much so that it was the number requested sandwich ingredient for school lunches for me, as a kid. I was a picky eater back then. So, my mom was just happy that she found something that I’d eat.
Flash forward 33 years and I had my very own picky little eater. But alas my picky eater also enjoyed peanut butter. So, something we most definitely had in common.
I didn’t have my first macaron though until I was well into my early twenties. But it was pretty much love at first sight. I can’t explain it. But the hard cookie shell and creamy center just did it for me. I have since had many a variety of macarons. Plus, as fate would hate it wouldn’t you know it my picky eater loves macarons, too.
I mentioned in this past macaron recipe share how I can’t get enough of the macarons in France in Disney World’s Epcot. My last time there, the picky eater actually was the one to remind and beg me not to forget to stop in France to get us macarons.
But I haven’t made a new batch of macarons at home for some time. So, I got to thinking about this. I decided why not bake Peanut Butter flavored macarons. I mean both the picky eater and I would most definitely approve. Plus, my husband and older daughter also love peanut butter and macarons. So, a family win for sure!
While macarons are not the easiest to bake, I still had to give this one the old college try on the recent winter break.
I made sure to use Hershey’s cocoa powder and melted peanut butter chips, too. Trust me these are peanut butter and macaron lover’s dream come true! Actually, they are pretty much heaven in every single bite!
