Learn how to make chocolate macarons, the cutest chocolate snack ever, where you will fill the sweetest chocolate ganache inside the baked chocolate meringue.



Here’s How to Make it :





Ingredients:

1 cup, powdered sugar
1/2 cup, powdered almonds
3 tbsp, unsweetened cocoa powder
2 large egg whites
Pinch of salt
5 tbsp, granulated sugar
1/2 cup, heavy cream
4 ounces, bitter sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 tbsp, unsalted butter
1 tsp instant coffee, optional



Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
  2. Sift together the mixture of powdered sugar, powdered almonds and cocoa into a large bowl and discard the larger lumps.
  3. Using a mixer/grinder beat the egg whites until soft peaks. Add pinch of salt and granulated sugar to it . Whip until very stiff and firm, about 2 minutes.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients (mixture of sugar, almond powder and cocoa) , in two batches, into the beaten egg whites with a silicone spatula.
  5. Fold untill the mixture is smooth and there are no streaks of egg white. Transfer the batter into the pastry bag. (standing the bag in a tall glass helps if you’re alone).
  6. Pipe the batter on the parchment-lined baking tray in 1-inch (2.5 cm) circles evenly spaced one-inch (2.5cm) apart.
  7. Tap the baking tray a few times firmly on the counter top to flatten the crunches, and remove air bubbles.
  8. Allow it to sit for 20 to 30 minutes until a “skin surface” forms and they are no longer wet when lightly touched.
  9. Bake them for 10-15 minutes. Let cool completely then remove from baking sheet.





To make the chocolate filling:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the cream and instant coffee if used.
  2. When the cream just begins to boil at the edges, remove from heat and pour over the chopped chocolate.
  3. Let sit one minute, then stir until smooth. Stir in the butter. Let cool completely before using.
  4. Spread a bit of chocolate batter on the inside of the crunches then sandwich them together.
  5. Let them stand at least one day before serving, to meld the flavors. Serve at room temperature.
