Preheat oven at 250 degrees F. Let Macarons stand for half an hour before putting in oven. Cook for about 15 to 20 mins. Remember to let Macarons stand for half an hour before removing from sheet.

Sorry that we forget to take picture for making the filling.. Bring cream & white choco chips to boil at lower heat, stir until choco is melted and perfectly blended in. Cool in refrigerator.
