That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Vanilla Macarons with Ganache Filling

Home » 500+ Chocolate Desserts Recipes » Vanilla Macarons with Ganache Filling





It was a “mad” sort of day.  I was assembling a Death by Chocolate Cake for my book club that night.  A cake that contains 44 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate and is composed of 6 different components which together form a magnificent dessert.  BUT the egg whites I’d been saving in the refrigerator for my first attempt at macarons were aged perfectly…and I was taking my youngest on a college visit out of town the next day.  What’s a girl to do?

You’ll have to visit my guest post on Bromography to see the what happened~

If you’d like to make your own delectable, melt in your mouth macarons, which I highly recommend, please buy a copy of Jill Colonna’s Mad About Macarons….or borrow mine…but not for too long!

We are off on yet another vacation this week…visiting relatives on both sides of the family.  I’m limiting my posts…and will catch up with all of you upon our return!  xoxo

  1. These macaroons look wonderful! Have fun on your trip!

  2. Cute little “feet” Lizzy…they came out great!

  3. I have never made macaroons, this post inspires me to attempt. I didn’t realise its better to age the egg whites for 4-5 days. So a good macaroon does require many days planning in advance, unfortunately the end result disappears faster than the speed of light!

  4. I have never tried them they look so perfect here, very inspiring great job to Bromography! Your cake was fabulous my dear!

  5. These are GORGEOUS…I’ll admit it: macarons intimidate the heck outta me! I love to eat them, but worry that our crazy Texas humidity would cause them to come out all sorts of wonky!!

  6. Simply elegant! I have not mustered the courage to try making these yet, but soon…I hope!

  7. I still haven’t managed to try my hand at macaroons, but when I do, vanilla w/ganache is a perfect flavor combo. One of these days I’ll get around to it.
