These s’mores macarons have graham cracker shells with a fluffy marshmallow and chocolate ganache filling. I replaced some of the almond flour with crushed up graham crackers to get that real s’mores taste. This has probably got to be my favorite macaron to date!
30-34 macaron shells; 15-17 completed macarons

- Weigh out all ingredients & prep baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat (and macaron template).
- Blend almond meal, powdered sugar, and graham cracker crumbs in a food processor, then sift.
- Mix the granulated sugar with the cream of tartar or dehydrated egg white powder and set aside for next part.
- Put eggs into mixing bowl and start beating at a low speed until you start to see “cappuccino foam”.
- Increase to medium speed and begin adding the granulated sugar mixture in a slow, steady stream over the next minute.
- After the sugar has been added, increase the speed to medium high and add the food coloring as well as the vanilla extract now. Continue beating until you reach medium-stiff peaks.
- Add half of the almond meal/powdered sugar mixture and fold it in. Then add the other half and make sure no dry pockets remain. Be careful not to overmix the batter.
- Transfer the batter in a pastry bag and pipe out onto the baking sheet.
- Lift pan and firmly bang it on a flat surface to get rid of any air bubbles.
- Pre-heat your oven to 300°F and let your macarons form a thin layer. This usually takes anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
- Bake macarons for 15-18 minutes.
- Take macarons out of the oven and let it cool. Then match up the macaron shells in size.
- Spread the marshmallow frosting on one shell and the chocolate ganache on the other and sandwich together for your very own s’mores macaron!
