It is NOT burger! It's burger MACARONS!

I have been always obsessed with the idea of other bakes that looks like a burger. I finally got around to making some just in time to celebrate the April's fool event, a typical look burger macarons. Yes, they're macarons, not the burgers!!!

In fact, the macarons that I make always seem to look like little burgers. So instead of fighting my macaron's burger-like quality, I decided to embrace it fully with these whimsical "burger" macarons. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on my macaron shells before baking them so that they would look like burger buns.

These misiature burger macarons are specially make for Erica's baby shower last week. I'm so delighted that she loves this burger macarons the most our of my Garfield and Teddy Bear Macarons.

Hankerie's new adventure of macarons - Burger Macarons

My Burger-Like Macaron Recipe:

For the Macaron Shells:
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
- 3 large egg whites, room temperature
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1TBSP cocoa powder
- sesame seeds for decorations

For the Filling:
- Chocolate ganache or Nutella (for the "burger patty")
- handful of dried shredded coconut (for the lettuce)
- Food coloring (green for the lettuce)
- yellow piece fondant (cut into square shape) - represent cheese

Macaron Shells:
1. Prepare Ingredients: Measure out all your ingredients. Sift the almond flour, cocoa powder and powdered sugar together.

2. Whip Egg Whites: In a clean, dry bowl, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add granulated sugar and continue whipping until stiff, glossy peaks form.

3. Macaronage:Gently fold the sifted almond flour and powdered sugar into the egg whites until you get a smooth, lava-like consistency. Divide the batter into three portions.

4. color the lettuce:Add green food colouring to dried shredded coconut. Mix gently.

5. Pipe the Shells:On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, pipe small circles for the top and bottom bun, as well as smaller circles for lettuce and tomato. Let them rest for 30 minutes to form a skin.

6. Bake: Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Bake the macarons for 12-15 minutes, or until they have risen and set. Let them cool completely.

Assembling the Burger Macarons:
1. Pair the Shells:Match up similar-sized shells for the top and bottom bun. 

2. Fill the "Burger": Pipe a small amount of chocolate ganache or Nutella on the bottom bun shell for the "burger patty."

3. Add the "Lettuce" and "Cheese": sprinkle green shredded coconut and a piece of yellow fondant on top of the "patty." 

4. Top It Off: Gently place the top bun shell on the filling, creating a mini macaron burger.

5. Let Them Set: Allow your burger macarons to set in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before serving. This allows the flavors to meld and the texture to develop.

Enjoy your delicious and whimsical burger-like macarons!
