Easter macarons are beautiful pastel colors. Easter macarons can be made into baby chicks, robin eggs, carrots, bunnies, and Easter egg shapes.
Easter egg macaron flavors include chocolate ganache, mini egg ganache, creme egg ganache, and vanilla buttercream filling.
Robin Egg Macarons
Robin egg macarons are made using a sky blue color to make your macaron shells the perfect robin egg color. You don’t want it to be too colored, just a hint of blue is ideal.
After the shells have come out of the oven and cooled, mix together brown food coloring and vanilla extract.
Create the “speckled” robin egg by using dipping a food safe paint brush in the vanilla extract mixture and flicking it onto the cooled macaron shells.
Robin egg macarons are filled with decadent chocolate ganache.
Mini Egg Macarons
Mini egg macarons are a personal favorite Easter flavored macaron!
Mini egg macarons are filled with a mini egg ganache.
You can make mini egg ganache by heating heavy cream, and pouring it over melted mini eggs. Mix the 2 together, and then blend them to remove any large shells in your ganache.
Let the ganache come to room temperature prior to filling your macarons. It’s easier if you chill the ganache before you want to use it. It’s easier to use when it’s firm.
Creme Egg Macarons
Creme egg macarons are a classic Eater flavored macaron. Creme egg macarons are filled by making a creme egg ganache.
Creme egg ganache is made by melting creme eggs over a double boiler, along with butter, milk chocolate, and heavy cream.
The ganache needs to cool, and be refrigerated prior to using. It’s best if you make it the day before, and then it has time to chill overnight and is ready for piping the following day.
Creme egg macarons are made “speckled” by using a bit of watered down gel food coloring, and then flicking it onto the cooled macaron shells with a food safe paintbrush.
Bunny macarons are the perfect Easter macarons to give away to family and friends.
Bunny macarons are made by piping a circle for the head, and then 2 long ears.
You can use a toothpick to guide the macaron batter if needed.
You can color the macaron batter any color you like, or leave it white for a classic bunny coloring.
Royal icing is used to color in the inside of the bunny ears, eyes, nose, mouth, and whiskers.
Bunny macarons are filled with tasty vanilla buttercream filling.
Baby Chick Macarons
Baby chick macarons are cute little macarons that are almost too adorable to eat!!
Baby chick macarons are colored yellow for their body.
The nose and feet are made by coloring melted white chocolate with a bit of orange food coloring. The chocolate is piped onto the chick after the macaron has cooled.
The eyes are made by making a simple icing with just water and icing sugar. The icing is dyed brown with food coloring, and then the eyes are piped onto the macaron.
Baby chick macarons are filled with sweet white chocolate ganache.
Easter Egg Macarons
Easter egg macarons are full of vibrant colors for Easter.
Easter has the beautiful pastel colors – yellow, pink, blue, purple. Pick a variety of colors for your Easter egg macarons.
The macarons are made into an egg shape – more of an oval than a circle. Use your piping skills to create the oval – egg shape for your Easter macarons.
The Easter egg macarons are decorated with royal icing. Royal icing will harden onto the macaron so well that they can be stacked if needed.
You can put a couple of sprinkles on top of the royal icing for an added decoration to your Easter macarons.
Easter egg macarons are filled with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream filling.
