You can use your favorite macaron recipe and bake for the exact time in your recipe to make these unique macarons.

You can also just have a plain white macaron that doesn’t have any color to it.
The macaron shells can be piped to the normal size of 1.5″ or 2″ circles.
Before the macarons are set to dry, you can add the speckled decoration onto the macarons.
