Ghost macarons are adorable cookies you can make for Halloween!
Ghost macarons are made using plain macaron batter.
They don’t have any food coloring in them, so they have a white color to them.
See full video on how to pipe and decorate ghost macarons at the bottom of the page.
You can use your favorite macaron recipe and bake for the exact time in your recipe to make these shaped macarons.
Pipe ghost macarons by starting at the head.
Pipe a circle, and then bring the batter down into a point, and go back up into the head again to complete the ghost. It should look like a balloon.
If you need to fill it in a little, add a bit more batter to the center or any part that looks a little light with batter.
Using a toothpick, guide the tail of the ghost into a point. Push the batter down on each side of the tail so the point looks even on both sides.
Let the macarons dry for 30 minutes.
Bake and fill the macarons.
You can add eyes and a mouth using an edible marker.
Draw circles for large eyes, or an open mouth.
You can give them eye brows or eye lashes using a wavy line.
You can also use add a little glimmer of gold in the eyes by mixing gold dust and almond extract together.
Using a pointed food safe paint brush, dip the brush into the freshly made paint, and put a touch of gold on the eyes.
