Chocolate Macaroons

2012-12-19

Ingredients:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Method:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment or preferably silicon pad.

Mix egg whites (unbeaten) with the ground almonds, cocoa and powdered sugar until you have a sticky but cohesive mixture.

Fill a large bowl with cold water and dip your hands in it to wet them before rolling the mixture into little balls the size of small walnuts. You will probably have to redunk your hands to keep wetting them as you go.

Arrange the macaroon-balls on the lined baking tray and put in the oven to bake for 11 minutes. It’s hard to tell when they’re ready, as they will seem squishy but they harden up a little as they cool, and anyway, they should be damp within; that’s what makes them chewy, so don’t worry that the macaroons look sticky underneath.

    I have been trying to come up with flavours for mini doughnuts but so far I have only came up with: Chocolate, Mixed berries, Strawberries, Lemon, Orange and Lime.
    10 points to the answer that has the most original flavours

    I made chocolate macaroons, they look delicious and perfect and want to be frosted so badly. But I look in my fridge and alas, no butter for buttercream, and no heavy cream for ganache. So what should I fill these poor chocolate macarons with?

    I bought powdered sugar today to make macaroons over the weekend.
    Right now I am impatient on making things, so I would like to know.

    What else can I make with powdered sugar?
    Aside from icing of course.
    Like another type of cream? Or candy recipe? Something! Thank you :)

    Which of the following desserts contains the least amount of calories (even the lowest will probably be high): piece of chocolate cake, chocolate macaroon, a slice of pie, chocolate cupcake, a chocolate cannoli, or a cinnamon bun? And how many calories does it have on average?

    Hi, I live in Alberta Canada. I was thinking of baking Christmas cookies to get a little extra money this Christmas season.
    How much should I charge per dozen for nicely decorated sugar cookies, thumbprint cookies (shortbread w/jam), peanut butter balls, gingerbread cookies, and chocolate macaroons? I was also thinking of baking them at the start of November, then freezing them as soon as they cool so they are still fresh for Christmas. Any ideas or advice for my cookie idea would be appreciated!
