This was my first go at making macaroons and it wont be the last. Little man declared that I must make more soon as they are "super super yummy!" Whilst they may not look 100% perfect as I used a pretty nozzle to pipe them, he is right! I was also shocked at how easy they were to make.
This recipe will make around 20 depending on how big you make them.
180g icing sugar
100g ground almonds
10g cocoa powder
40g caster sugar
3 eggs whites
For the filling:
Start by pre heating the oven to 160C.
Sieve the icing sugar, cocoa powder and ground almonds into a bowl.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff and whisk in the caster sugar.
Fold in the icing sugar, cocoa powder and ground almonds.
Put into an icing bag (you are meant to use a 1cm plain nozzle) and pipe 40 circles that are about 3cm diameter on some baking paper. Make sure they are well spread out.
Cook for 7 minutes, then take out of the oven and allow them to cool before taking off the baking paper.
Sandwich them together with Nutella.
