Ingredients

  • 110 grams powdered sugar
  • 50 grams ground almonds
  • 12 grams cocoa powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 40 grams granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup nutella for filling

Instructions

  • Add powdered sugar, whole almonds, and cocoa powder to a food processor. Process until you have a fine powder.
  • Sift mixture into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk egg whites on medium-high speed until they are frothy.
  • Slowly add the granulated sugar, while beating, until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  • Add one half of the meringue to the flour mixture and fold it in gently. A
  • dd the remaining meringue and do the same. The batter should look like flowing lava, thick but able to spread.
  • Put the batter into a giant ziploc bag and snip off one of the bottom corners.
  • On a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, pipe out circles approximately 1.5 inches in diameter.
  • When you are done piping hit the baking sheet against the counter to let any air bubbles settle (This is a very important step).
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and let the piped macarons sit out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. They will develop a film on the top of them and feel a bit dry. If they don't feel like this then let them sit a little longer.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes. Rotate the pans in the oven halfway through to ensure even baking.
  • When the macarons are done put them on a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • When they are cool pipe out a small circle of nutella on a macaron and with another macaron (preferably of the same size) press down gently so you make a sandwich and the nutella just reaches the sides of the cookie.
