Pink Ribbon Macarons Recipe

I am just obsessed with macarons! 

If you are new to macarons


I would start here with my DIY guide to french macarons. And be sure to watch the videos - they really help. I have my own recipe - but the one in this post is a great starting point.

If you are comfortable with macarons


Try the next level - dipping them! For the dipped macarons, be sure your finished macarons have fully chilled in the fridge. Use candy melts and gently dip the macaron to cover just under 1/2 of the cookie. While still warm, shake sprinkles over top to cover. Place on wax paper in the fridge until set.

If you are really comfortable with macarons


Try the ribbon shape! Draw an outline of a ribbon and try piping this shape. Be sure not to drag the tip on the parchment paper - keep it vertical and 1/2 in above the parchment. 

And best of all? They tast AMAZING!!! If you have no idea what a macaron is - find one and EAT it. It will change your life lol!
