Extra Ingredients you will need for Mummy Macarons
- White melting chocolate
- Googly Eyes
- Edible marker
- Eclair Template (we loved THIS one)
- Tipless Piping Bag + bag clip, we use Borderlands Bakery bags (but a ziploc bag would work too)
- Bright White Chef Master color.
- Just Find Best parchment paper with eclair shapes. Use the code sweetmacshop for 10% off your order.
Let’s walk thru the steps
FULL DISCLAIMER: I am not a character or shape mac maker. I am the self-appointed President of the Circle Squad, so let me just say this — if I can do this, you can too!
Make batter as usual, adding 10 drops of Chef Master color in Bright White when it calls for adding color. We beat our egg whites until our peaks are stiff.
Macaronage until ribbons form. These don’t have to be fast flowing ribbons, but just so the batter doesn’t fall in chunks off the spatula. Pour into prepared piping bag with Wilton size 12 tip. I used the same tip that I would have if I were piping circles.
- Looking back, I probably should have outlined the shape and filled it in, but instead, I just went for it.
- If one ends up being a little crooked, try to mimic it for the next one so the top and bottom of the mummies will line up.
- Make sure you turn the parchment paper upside down if using Just Find Best. I accidentally didn’t a few weeks ago and the print of the template came off onto the cookie. This may only be noticeable if making white or light macarons.
Bake as usual. I did the exact same baking time as I do the circles, and they turned out perfectly. Now its time to decorate! Yay! Leave the macaron mummies on the tray. If they are stuck to the paper it makes it easier to do the next steps.
Decorating your Mummies
- On one-half of the mummies, draw two dots for where the eyes will go. I also drew on cute stick figure hands, because, why not? Yes, they also needed cute fingers.
- Next, melt the white chocolate in the microwave per instructions. Put the chocolate into the tipless bag or a ziploc bag and snip the tip of the bag.
- Put a dab of white chocolate where you marked the dots with the white chocolate, and place on the googly eyes. Yes, the chocolate doubles as edible glue.
- Once the arms are drawn, and the eyes are on, cut the tip of the bag a little bit bigger and zig zag across the mummy. I stayed clear of the hands so you could see them, just like this:
5. Once they are all completed, I moved them over to a parchment lined baking sheet. This gets rid of the dried chocolate clumps on the sides of the mummy.
Fill with our American Buttercream once they are completely dry. Store in airtight container.
