DIY Melting Ghost Halloween Macarons

It’s not Halloween around Sugar & Cloth until we’ve topped a dessert with another dessert, then topped that with another dessert, am I right?! That’s basically all we’re doing here with this DIY melting ghost Halloween macarons, and I’m not mad about it! Plus they’re perfectly spooky and cute.

I also cheated and used the Trader Joe’s macaron packs (find them in the freezer section, seriously so good and so cheap!), so you can literally make dozens of these for under $20! Your kids will love them, and your adult friends will think they’re totally luxe…

To make sure that the ghosts aren’t too top heavy to where they fall off of the macarons, use a sharp knife to cup them in half.

Next smear a little dollop of marshmallow fluff onto the top of that macaron. It will slowly spread over the edge on it’s own.

Now stick the ghost peep on top and lightly torch the edges to look toasted, and serve! If they start to slide too much, use less of the marshmallow fluff. Be sure to serve them quickly, too!

    i dont have a bakery torch so could i just use A hairdryer? (Haha!) or Is there a different tool I can use?

      Your best bet is to use a torch for this, but a lighter might work as well!
