Macaron Filling Recipes

Macaron Fillings

If you're using our Bake-it-Yourself Macaron Kits to make your very own French Macarons, we've compiled two of our favorite filling recipes below so you can complete your treats!

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1/2 c. Chocolate Chips

  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter

  • 2 Tbsp Heavy Cream (can substitute Milk)

  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

  • Pinch of Salt

  1. Bring Cream and Butter just to a boil in small saucepan. Remove from heat (or microwave in microwave-safe bowl for ~1.5-2 minutes)

  2. Pour mixture over top of SemiSweet Chocolate Chips. DO NOT STIR.

  3. Cover for 2 minutes (to keep in the heat), allowing Cream mixture to melt Chocolate

  4. Add Vanilla Extract and Salt. Stir until fully melted and mixed

Vanilla Buttercream

  • 1/2 C. Butter, room temperature

  • ~2-3 C. Powdered Sugar

  • 1/8 C. Milk

  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract (or any other flavored extract you want to use)

  • 1/4 Tsp. Salt

  1. Cream Butter for 1 minute. Add all other ingredients (start with 2 cups Powdered Sugar). Beat slowly until combined.

  2. Beat 4-6 minutes on high until fluffy and smooth. Add more Powdered Sugar if frosting is not stiff enough, and beat until fluffy

Note: You can easily change the flavor here using whatever flavor extract you want. Some of my favorites: orange extract, almond extract, or mint extract.
