minion macarons.


A fun Minon macaron recipe for my Minon mad nephew. I created these little bite sized blue and yellow treats for his 4th birthday. I'd already got him into macarons a few months earlier (could be due to the Nutella filling...) and now it's really cute that he requests them from me. His wish was my command when I conjured up these Despicable Me delicacies alongside the rest of the spread.

I always swear by Sugarflair when it comes to coloured macarons - they're a little pricy but a tiny pot lasts me ages and can be adjusted to different colour strengths. Simply halve the mix and pipe a mix of yellow and blue. Lemon or blueberry buttercream could work well here but I thought I'd stick to the chocolate...




Shopping list. 
(Makes 12 medium or 24 mini) 
♥ Two egg whites
♥ 75g caster sugar 
♥ 90g icing sugar 
♥ 75g ground almonds, sieved until fine 
♥ Food colouring gel or powder - I used Sugarflair Lemon Yellow and Royal Blue
♥ Nutella or chocolate spread

♥ Edible eyeballs for decoration

To make the shells, simply follow the basic macaron recipe from my macaron step by step guide. The base is always the same and flavour is all in the filling! 



When cool, pipe Nutella on one half and twist the shells together. Decorate with one or two eyes using a dab of sugar water. Ta daaa!


Have you ever made any Minon party recipes? Would you try making minion macarons?
