Quick and easy chocolate macaroons recipe


Makes: 24

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 2 medium egg whites

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Line two baking sheets with baking paper. In a large bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, icing sugar and ground almonds.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold into the almond mixture.

Use a teaspoon to spoon 12 small rounds of the mixture onto each baking sheet, leaving a gap between each.

Bake for 15 minutes until the macaroons are firm to the touch but still a little soft in the centre.

Set aside on the tray for a few minutes, then peel off the paper and leave to cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
