S’mores Macarons

 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!

Directions:

  1. Weigh out all ingredients & prep baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat (and macaron template).
  2. Blend almond meal, powdered sugar, and graham cracker crumbs in a food processor, then sift.
  3. Mix the granulated sugar with the cream of tartar or dehydrated egg white powder and set aside for next part.
  4. Put eggs into mixing bowl and start beating at a low speed until you start to see “cappuccino foam”.
  5. Increase to medium speed and begin adding the granulated sugar mixture in a slow, steady stream over the next minute.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Transfer the batter in a pastry bag and pipe out onto the baking sheet.
  9. Lift pan and firmly bang it on a flat surface to get rid of any air bubbles.
  10. 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.
  11. Bake macarons for 15-18 minutes.
  12. Take macarons out of the oven and let it cool. Then match up the macaron shells in size.
  13. Spread the marshmallow frosting on one shell and the chocolate ganache on the other and sandwich together for your very own s’mores macaron!
