INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Download, print and cut out 6 of the smaller Mickey stencils.
  • Sift together almond flour and powdered sugar. Set aside.
  • In a clean bowl using an electric mixer, start creating the meringue. Whisk egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
  • Slowly add granulated sugar to meringue with whisk on low. Increase speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold in flour mix to meringue batter until just combined. Separate batter into 6 bowls.
  • Add purple, blue, green, yellow, red and pink gel food coloring into each bowl. Gently fold color in just until batter is smooth but not loose and bubbly.
  • Put Mickey stencils under parchment paper on baking sheet.
  • Pour each colored batter into piping bags fitted with pastry tips. Pipe batter over Mickey stencils.
  • While setting, make the ganache. Add chocolate and butter to a heat proof bowl and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, heat heavy cream until steaming. Pour over chocolate and butter and let stand for 1 minute.
  • Stir cream and chocolate until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until just firmed.
  • Fill pastry bag with firmed ganache to fill macarons. Then pair up each macaron color and place the bottoms up on a tray.
  • Fill one side of the macarons with a dollop of ganache. Sandwich macarons halves together.

Enjoy!
