coffee

Coffee flavoured macaroons are the absolute perfect desert to eat with your family and friends after a satisfying meal. This treat is too delicious to pass up! And the recipe is surprisingly simple!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 Egg Whites; kept in room temperature for 24-48 hours
  • 1/4 cups White Sugar
  • 2 cups Confectioners’ Sugar
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Instant Coffee
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips; for filling
  • 1 tablespoon Instant Coffee; for filling
  • 1/2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream; for filling

    Step 1: In a bowl of a standing electric mixer, beat egg whites with granulated sugar, until it begins to rise and hold its shape.

    Step 2: Sift powdered sugar and almond flour to get rid of any lumps.

    Step 3: Sift coffee into the almond flour. Stir to combine all ingredients together.

    Step 4: Stir in dry ingredients into egg whites. Be sure not to overmix the ingredients, it should slide off spatula, but not be too runny.

    Step 5: Place plastic or pastry bag into a cup to hold it straight. I would suggest a pastry bag, hence once you cut off the edge of a plastic bag, it may not be a round shape. In this case, I wasn’t going to make a trip to the store, so I did use a ziplock bag. Pour the entire mixture into the bag. Remove from the cup and twist, to hold the batter in the inside.

    Step 6: Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Pipe circles into the baking sheet, making them thick. Tap baking sheet at least 3 times on each side, this will get rid of any air bubbles and will prevent from cracks. Let macarons sit in room temperature for about 20 minutes, they will create a bit of a shell, also helps from cracks on top. Bake macarons at 300F for 12-15 minutes, they are ready when they no longer stick to parchment paper.

    Step 7: Combine chocolate chips and instant coffee together into a pot. Bring whipping almost to a boil, add it to the chocolate chips. Whisk everything until chocolate is completely melted. Let the chocolate ganache harden a little.

    Step 8: Place plastic bag or pastry bag into a cup, to hold it straight. Fill the bag with cream. Pipe cream onto one of the macron pieces and cover it with the other piece. Keep macarons refrigerated until ready to serve.
