How to make Eggnog Macarons

  • Bake macaron shells. For recipes and instructions how to make macaron shells check here. You can add about 1 tsp ground nutmeg into the shells. But be careful and do not add too much.
  • Prepare eggnog ganache. I usually make ganache first as that requare time to staibalize in the regregirator and then I make macaron shells.
  • Assemble macarons. When you have macaron shells baked and gaanche ready, only then assemble macarons.
  • Mature macarons in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!

Ingredients you’ll need for ganache

  • Eggnog. Use store-bought eggnog. Do not use light eggnog as the ganache may be runny. You will need to add more white chocolate then.
  • White chocolate. Use good quality chocolate. For this recipe I used Callebaut 28% White Chocolate.
  • Bourbon Whiskey. If you want to make non-alcoholic eggnog macarons, you can replace whiskey with eggnog.
  • Nutmeg. Ground nutmeg was used in this recipe.

How to make Eggnog ganache

In the small saucepan add eggnog and warm up over medium heat. Do not boil. Pour warm eggnog over white chocolate and let it set for a minute or so. Add ground nutmeg and Bourbon Whiskey (optional) and emulsify with hand blender. Transfer ganache into flat container and cover with the plastic wrap “to contact”. Ganache needs to stabalize in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours or overnight.

Tip from Marina: if ganache is runny after stabilization, you can add more melted white chocolate (about 30-40 gr) and stabilaze again.

Transfer ganache into pipping bag with round tip. I use Wilton 12 pipping tip. Pipe ganache onto flat side of macaron shell. Dust ganache with ground nutmeg. Sandwich macaron with onother shell. Place assembled macarons into container and cover with the lid. Macarons need to mature in the refrigerator for 12 hours before you can enjoy them. This is very important step. Do not skip it!
