Food DIY: Choco-Macaroons

Choco-Macaroons

 

You’ll need:

? 110g icing sugar
? 60g ground almonds
? 2 egg whites
? 40g caster sugar
? metallic food paint
? parchment paper, circles drawn on
? dark chocolate ganache mix
? tools, pictured

1. Whisk egg whites until firm; add caster sugar and further whisk into stiff peaks. Fold in sifted icing sugar and almonds.

2. Add food colouring to achieve your desired shade. Use a few colours, to show your palette’s range.

3. Pipe onto circles, leave for 15mins; bake in a preheated oven (180?C) for 10-15 minutes: then cool on a rack.

4. Spread warmed dark chocolate ganache on the underside of half the circles, then add a top to each.

5. Use a metallic food paint, in your chosen accent shade, to create a light stroke atop each macaroon.
