These adorable cupcakes are simple to make and don’t even require a stand mixer to get the job done. Though candy corn isn’t an official ingredient, it would be welcome as a topping!

Candy Corn Macarons

For the adventurous and/or seasoned home baker, candy corn macarons are the perfect fall baking bucket list item. If you’ve never made macarons before, check out this tutorial to learn the basics.

Kitchen pro tip: Wipe the bowl and whisk of your stand mixer out with lemon juice or white vinegar just before you add your egg whites. This erases any scant trace of leftover fat from another bake and helps ensure your meringue will whip to its full potential. Additionally, be sure to add cream of tartar to your meringue; the acidity of the cream of tartar works to strengthen the proteins in the egg whites, helping them to stay strong as you whip them.
