Nutella Macarons (Chocolate Hazelnut French Macarons)


Ingredients:
  • 90g Egg Whites
  • 1/4tsp Salt56g Caster Sugar
  • 65g Ground Almonds
  • 156g Icing Sugar
  • 20g Cocoa Powder
Method:
Mix the icing sugar, ground almonds, and cocoa powder together in a food processor. Sift the mixture 3 times to remove any lumps. Add the egg whites and salt to a stand mixer and whisk on a medium speed until pale and frothy. Slowly add the caster sugar and mix on a high speed for 2 minutes (stiff peak stage). Add half of the sifted mixture to the egg whites and gently fold together (10 folds approx). Add the remaining dry mixture and fold until the consistency resembles lava (30 folds approx). Pipe onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Tap the tray against the work surface to remove any air bubbles and leave to sit for 30 minutes - 1 hour to form a skin. Bake at 170 degrees C for 10-15 minutes. Leave to cool before removing from the greaseproof paper.
