What happens when you combine the look of a macaron, with the taste of marshmallow!?!
Our girl, Abby Hunter aka @fetegazette dreamed up this whimsy dessert with us that seriously looks like a macaron, but tastes like a marshmallow with a little graham crunch! This yummy recipe will take all you ten minutes to create. These are perfect for any celebration, holiday or party that needs some delish cuteness. In keeping with the traditional macaron pastel hues, we went with this soft palate, but get creative with your color palate. PS- No baking skills required. We created a list HERE where you can scoop up all the ingredients ASAP.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Hold the blades of your kitchen scissors under hot, running water. Once they are warm, cut off the entire end of a jumbo marshmallow about ?” from the edge. Place a graham cracker (or cereal) in a sandwich bag, and seal the top after letting out any excess air. Use your fist to crush the graham cracker. If you have a food chopper, you may prefer to use that instead.
Immediately dip the sticky side of the marshmallow end into the bag of graham cracker crumbs. This creates the cakey appearance seen on the edges of a real macaron. Set the dipped marshmallow on a large piece of wax paper. Repeat this step with the other end of your marshmallow.
With your two marshmallow pieces sitting on wax paper, hold the color mist can at a good distance and lightly spray a coat of color over them, including the graham cracker crumbs. You will have to allow each side to dry before flipping the pieces over to spray the second side, and then allow them to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Heat some marshmallow crème in a microwave-safe bowl for 10-15 seconds, and stir well. Use a spoon to place a very small scoop of crème in the middle of a crumb-covered side of one of your marshmallow pieces. Now sandwich the two pieces together, with the crumb-sides facing inward.
Voilà! Now you have a beautiful marshmallow macaron.
