Easy No Bake Flying Monkey Macarons Recipe!


Hey All!

In honor of the new LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY’S RETURN film coming to theaters May 9, I decided to celebrate with a fun Oz inspired recipe. One thing I always remember when I think of Oz are the flying monkey’s. The new film is a 3-D animated musical based on Roger Stanton Baum’s 1989 novel Dorothy of Oz. This time around, the devious new villain is the Jester (voiced by Martin Short) accompanied by his flying monkeys. I thought why not make some edible flying monkey’s that we could enjoy in celebration of this fantastic new film.

I like my recipes to be easy, So here is a fun NO-Bake option for you to make some adorable Flying Monkey Macarons.

What you’ll need:

Trader Joes Chocolate Macarons.

Wilton Chocolate Melts in Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Flavors.

A pencil and a stencil of these bat wings below.


Parchment Paper.

2 Microwaveable Plastic Tubes.

Food Coloring pens.

First you trace out the bat wings on your parchment paper with your pencil. You then draw the face of the monkey onto the macaron with the plastic tubes and melted peanut butter candy melts. Let the melted peanut butter dry. It dries with in a few minutes. If you want to speed up the process place them in the freezer.


You then melt down the Wilton Milk Chocolate candy melts inside the microwave for 45 seconds. You use this along with your wing stencils to make the Flying Monkey wings. You trace the chocolate along the stencil and let dry for a few minutes.


You then take two Wilton Milk Chocolate candy melts and put them inside each of the macarons on each side so they look like the monkey ears. In the center of the chocolate wings pour a little melted milk chocolate in order to stick the wings to the macaron.


Lastly… Take the food coloring pen in black and draw the Monkey faces on the macarons.


That’s all you need to do for this creative recipe.


Serve and delight your family and friends in honor of LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY’S RETURN.


Here is a little about the film in case you haven’t heard of it:

Dorothy’s only just returned home from her first incredible journey to Oz, but she’s already being called back for another adventure! After waking to post-tornado Kansas, Dorothy (Lea Michele) and Toto are whisked to Oz on a magical rainbow mover sent by their old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Lion (Jim Belushi) and the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer). Time in Oz has passed much faster than back in Kansas, and Dorothy discovers that the Jester (Martin Short) – the devious brother of the Wicked Witch of the West – is taking Oz over one region at a time, holding their leaders captive and casting a pall of darkness over the beloved land. Even Glinda (Bernadette Peters) is unable to combat the Jester’s evil powers, making Dorothy their only hope.

When she arrives in Oz, Dorothy’s plan is to travel to the Emerald City to reunite with her old friends and join forces with them to stop the Jester. However, the yellow brick road isn’t quite as easy to follow this time around, especially with the Jester planting tricky detours to lead her astray, so she enlists the help of Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), China Princess (Megan Hilty) and Tugg the tugboat (Patrick Stewart) to help find her way.

Dorothy is grateful for the support of her new friends, but when she realizes that having them by her side means putting them all in grave danger, she has to decide whether to continue to accept their assistance or forge the road alone. But with the future of Oz at stake, it’s going to take as much heart, brain and courage as they can collectively muster to defeat the Jester and return order and happiness to the Emerald City.

The film Stars Lea Michele, Hugh Dancy, Megan Hilty, Jim Belushi, Martin Short, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Oliver Platt, Bernadette Peters and Patrick Stewart with new music by Bryan Adams
