Chefmaster's Recipe: Macarons with Natural Colors

macarons natural food colors

Is there anything more charming than macarons? Yes, naturally colored macarons! Chefmaster® has all the colors of the rainbow in Natural Liqua-gel® food colors, so regardless of the occasion you can have macaroons that fit any theme. We know what you’re thinking – Do I really need an occasion to enjoy macarons? No, enjoy these lovely little treats any time!

What you’ll need:


  1. Place silicone macaron baking mat onto cookie sheet.
  2. Add egg whites to mixing bowl and beat with a stand mixer until whites are foamy. Beat in white sugar and continue to mix until whites are glossy and fluffy. You want the egg whites to hold soft peaks.
  3. Add a drop of Chefmaster® Natural Liqua-gel® food color and mix until color is blended. Continue to add single drops of color until desired shade is reached.
  4. Fold powdered sugar and almond flour into egg white mixture. This can be done by hand with a large spoon or spatula. About 30 strokes.
  5. Place mixture into piping bag. Pipe the batter onto the silicone baking sheet so the disk space is covered.
  6. Once the baking sheet is full let piped cookies stand at room temperature until they form a hard skin on top (about 1 hour).
  7. Preheat oven to 285°F.
  8. Bake cookies for about 10 minutes. The cookies should bake but not brown. We suggest keeping a close eye on them as they can burn easily.
  9. Once cookies have cooled completely take two cookies and sandwich with jelly or cream filling.
  10. Wow, people with your amazing macaron making skills . . . or keep them all for yourself 😉 Enjoy!
