- wax paper
- green edible ink pen
- green heart shaped sprinkles

to make them:
1. pair similar size shells and fill with buttercream. chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
2. melt green candy coating. remove macarons and gently dip 1/3 - 1/2 into the coating.
3. dip into the sprinkles and set on wax paper upright to cool.
4. use a green edible ink pen and draw a stem for the clover directly on the top shell.
5. use a small amount of royal icing and adhere the green hearts into a clover shape.
