Macarons with Nutella®

A special baking challenge

Macaroons are very delicate thanks to their meringue-based confection. A refined and delicate dessert, with a French heart and a tempting shape.

Fill the sweet with Nutella, right between two halves, and you will have something classy and tasteful. Last but not least, a beautiful tray of macarons will make the perfect treat as a Christmas gift.

In a bowl, mix the almond flour with 200g of powdered sugar

In another bowl, whisk the egg whites with 60g of powdered sugar until stiff

Add the egg whites mixture to the flour mixture and gently combine with a spatula (going from the bottom of the bowl to the top in a circular motion so that the egg whites do not collapse)

Macarons with Nutella® 2 | Nutella

With a pencil, draw 3cm diameter circles on parchment paper placed on a baking tray (you may find it helpful to use round cookie cutters so that to get macarons of same size). Draw 40 circles.

Place the mixture in a piping bag

Squeeze out the mixture to fill in each drawn circle and let sit for 30 minutes

Macarons with Nutella® 4 | Nutella

Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F)

Bake for 14 minutes on the middle rack

Remove from the oven and let cool down

Spread 12g of Nutella ® on one side of a cookie and place another cookie on top. Repeat with the rest of the cookies

The macarons must be stored in a cool place before serving (eg. in the fridge).
