I recently found an easy recipe for frosting using the Jell-o frostings– This recipe works well on pretty much everything… especially macarons.
By now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I love macarons. I’m always looking for different ways to dress ‘em up and play around. I’ve experimented with topping the macarons before baking and non-perils and sprinkles hold up reallyyyy well in the oven. For the green sprinkles, I used Wilton Cake “Sparkles”– those can be found here.
Green Apple Macarons
(for the Macarons, follow this recipe)
For the Jell-o Frosting:
- 3 ounce pkg. of Jell-o, green-apple flavored.
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg white
- 1 tsp. vanilla
2. Make filling while the macarons are cooling down:
Place the ingredients in a large mixing bowl– this works best with a stand mixer, but hand mixers can be used as long as you use a heat resistant bowl. Turn mixer on high and then slowly stream 1/2 cup boiling water over ingredients. Whip on high for five minutes- occasionally scraping down the bowl. (you can find more detailed instructions on ‘Coleen’s Recipes‘). I added a little bit more green food coloring to the frosting, to make the green pop.
3. Fill your macarons using the flavoured filling. Eat and Enjoy!
