Hello everyone, I hope you’re all well.

Today’s temptations are these pretty macarons with a luscious chocolate filling, perfect as a little gift, or to serve to your guests.

Go here to see the recipe and step-by-step photos on how to make vanilla macarons. Just add your chosen food coloring paste, if using.

Line a baking tray with baking paper, or use a macaron silicone mat.

Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 1A tip and pipe small rounds onto the tray or mat.

Set aside to dry for at least 1-2 hours.

Chocolate frosting:

  • 7 oz. (200 g) dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (100 ml) strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) butter, at room temperature

Melt the chocolate with the coffee using a bain marie (waterbath).

Stir in the butter until the mixture is smooth, then chill for 20 minutes.

Sandwich together the macarons using 1 teaspoon chocolate frosting for each pair.

  1. Hei! Jeg elsker bloggen og bøkene dine, men lurte på en ting med macaroner – går det an å lage de uten mandler, og bruke noe annet i stedet? Har en kjæreste som ikke tåler mandler.
