Disney sure knows how to celebrate Halloween with their amazing decorations and yummy treats!
Each year when my favorite holiday rolls around, I check out all of the adorable treats that are made at Disneyland and Disney World and figure out a way to recreate them at home!
That’s why, when I saw these cute Mickey Mummy Macarons floating showing up all over Instagram, I knew that I needed to get to work!
What is a Macaron?
Not to be confused with a macaroon, a macaron with one “o” is a French cookie made with meringue and almond flour and is sandwiched around some kind of yummy filling.
Tips and Tricks for Making Macarons
Here are some tips I learned as I was making these cute Halloween Macarons at home:
- Use eggs whites that are room temperature
- Run the powdered sugar and almond flour through a food processor and mesh strainer 2 – 3 times to get a smooth topped macaron
- Pipe the cookie batter onto parchment paper rather than a silicone baking mat, which will keep the cookie too moist
- To make your macarons Mickey-shaped, use this PRINTABLE MICKEY MOUSE TEMPLATE under your parchment paper when you pipe on the cookie batter. I printed 4 copies and placed them on my baking sheet, then added a small piece of tape to hold them in place, so that the macarons would be properly spaced when baking.

Helpful Kitchen Tools
How to Make Mickey Mummy Macarons
- Measure and place the almond flour and powdered sugar in a food processor.
- Run mixture through a mesh strianer. Process 2 more times for best results.
- Add the room temperature egg whites and cream of tartar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Use a whisk attachment and beat the mixture until it begins to turn white and opaque.
- Turn the mixer on low and gradually add in sugar.
- Turn the mixer on high and beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. It should be stiff enough that if you turned the bowl over, nothing would move.
- How to Macaronage: Add 1/3 of dry ingredients into egg white mixture and fold in by hand with a spatula. Continue with the next 1/3 followed by the rest of the mixture.
- Continue to fold in until it can make an 8 without breaking. The batter should be the consistency of lava (see video).
- Stop mixing.
- Print 4 copies of the Mickey template stencil and fit onto baking sheet. Cover with parchment paper.
- Add the cookie batter to a piping bag. Snip off end and pipe over each Mickey stencil.
- Drop the pan 3-5 times on the counter top to help eliminate bubbles.
- Let the batter rest for 45 minutes.
- Bake the Mummy Mickey Macarons at 320 degrees for 10-12 minutes, rotating pan at 7 minutes.
- Once you remove them from the oven, let them rest on the baking sheet for 20 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to completely cool.
To Make the Cookies and Cream Filling for Mickey Mummy Macarons:
- Begin by creaming or beating the softened butter in a stand mixer.
- You can crush your OREOs into crumbs by placing them in a ziplock bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin, or you can add them to a food processor or blender.
- Add the OREO crumbs and vanilla extract to the butter and combine.
- Pour in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly in between.
- Add 1-2 Tablespoons of milk to the filling to thin out if necessary.
How to Assemble Mummy Mickey Macarons
- Add the filling to a piping bag and use scissors to snip off the end.
- Pipe the filling onto the back of 1/2 of the cookies.
- Place another cookie on top of the filling.
- Melt 1/2 bag of white candy melts according to the package directions.
- Add the melted white melts to a sandwich size ziplock bag and snip a tiny piece off one corner.
- Go back and forth in a diagonal motion across all of the cookies to create a drizzle.
- Repeat going the opposite way back across the cookies.
- Place the candy eyes on the Mickey Macaron using more white candy melts if needed. I used small tongs to not disturb the white drizzles.
