How To Make French Chocolate Macarons | 法式巧克力馬卡龍








After making Macarons more than 10 times with lots of note taking, They aren's super easy, It takes practice and time, effort and lot of love. This recipe for chocolate macarons is my all-time favorite. Tonight and my husband said they are the best macarons he's ever had. You can do whatever shape or pattern you like and I believe it will quickly become your favourite too, by far the tastiest, not too sweet, rich, chocolatey, soft and chewy. Great for a Birthday/Christmas gifts or You can match virtually any cake or party decor to make your celebration special.

Makes 25-30

Ingredients

(A)
4 tbsp powdered sugar, (make your own or purchase on store)
3/4 cup, 14 tbsp, ground almonds, (extra fine)
2 tbsp cocoa powder,  (sieved)

(B)
2 aged egg whites (L)
4 tbsp granulated sugar

(C)
A drop of almond extract

(D)
Filling:
• 100ml fresh double/whipping cream (original pack)
• 100g dark chocolate chips (dr oaetker 1 pack of 100g)

Method:
1) Place the granulated sugar in a food processor and process on high until powder forms, and continue place the ground almonds, blend them very fine.

2) Add the powdered sugar, extra fine ground almonds and sieved  cocoa powder into a bowl, and mix well.

3) Whisk the aging egg whites and add sugar a little bit at a time, until stiff peak, about 3 minutes. then sift the (1) dry ingredients into the whites and fold in using a spatula, lifting and turning gently. Do not over mixed the batter.

4) Fill an piping bag with batter and snip off the corner. Pipe onto the sheet/mat making small blobs around an inch big. Leaving a little space between each. llightly tap your baking mat/sheet after piping your macarons to release the air bubbles and then pop them with a metal skewer/toothpick then leave for 2 hours to dry out or until a skin develops.

5) Baked at 120C for 23 minutes. Let them cool completely before you peel or grab them off of the mat/sheet and store in a airtight container and it keeps fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. of course you can pipe the filling in the same day. When macarons are freshly baked, the shell is crispy outside, chewy inside and they are actually not ready to eat. It taste perfectly when "ripened" in the fridge for 24-48 hours.

6) To make the filling, In a small saucepan, Cook the double cream over middle low heat, add dark chocolate chips, and whip until smooth. Leave to thicken for at least 30 minutes. Pipe filling between two shells.

Helpful Tips:
1) Aging egg whites basically means separating your egg whites and yolks, and storing your egg whites in an airtight container in a fridge for overnight.
2) Allow the shells to stand at fan oven to speed up the drying process about 1 hour, until a skin forms on the surface. The batter should not stick to your fingers. This will prevent them from cracking in the oven.
3) It's best to bake at a lower temperature for a longer period of time and avoid them crack and no feet.
4) If your ground almonds not finely enough or you skip the steps of lightly tap your baking mat/sheet after piping your macarons. This makes for macaron shells not smooth and shiny.

120克 低筋面粉

做法步骤:
1) 黄油室温软化。冬天不容易软化,可以放入微波炉加热20秒左右。
2) 加入盐、糖粉、打发至颜色发白,体积膨松,大约十分钟左右。
3) 接着分3次加入过筛的低粉,用刮刀切拌、翻拌的方式,让黄油慢慢被吸收。
4) 将搅拌均匀的面糊放入包装薄膜或者直接装入裱花袋, 可以挤出各种形状。这次我用的裱花嘴尺寸是 4.6cm/1.81" x 3cm/1.18"。挤出5cm宽度,可做出10块(大)的量 。如果挤2cm宽度,可做30块(小)的量 。
5) 放进冰箱冷藏至少30分钟或者过夜,直至变硬。 这样烤出来的花纹就不会塌下去,而是更立体了。
6) 每个人的烤箱不同, 温度也会有差异。我的是先预热烤箱150度上下火, 烤20分钟。 请根据自己的烤箱做调整。看到曲奇边缘金黄色就可以了。 刚出炉的曲奇是软软的,很容易碎,千万别用手动它。 等冷却后就自然变酥脆了。
7) 完全冷却后,密封保存, 三天內食用最佳。
