  • 6 small orange coloured macarons
  • 2 chocolate matchmaker sticks any flavour
  • 1 black edible marker pen


  • Split the macarons in half (be careful, they're delicate!) by sliding a thin knife between them to lift off the top.
  • Break or cut each chocolate matchmaker stick into 3 roughly equal pieces.
  • Press 1 of the stick pieces into the middle of each macaron to form the pumpkin stalks.
  • Pop the tops back on the macarons.
  • Using a black edible marker pen, draw a spooky Jack-O'-Lantern face on each macaron 'pumpkin'. Be careful to draw lightly so that you don't go through the delicate macaron crust.
  • Leave to dry for a minute or two, then place on a plate or platter to serve.
