Autumn-Coloured Macarons Chestnut & Chocolate instructions

  1. Combine the powdered sugar, cocoa and almond flour and sift twice..
  2. Whip the egg whites with a hand mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add the granulated sugar in 3 batches after the mixture first starts to stiffen up. Add the last batch just before you get stiff peaks..
  3. Fold the powder ingredients from Step 1 into the meringue in large, careful motions to keep the air in. Fold until the mixture becomes glossy..
  4. Pipe the macaron batter out into 4 cm diameter circles and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes at room temperature..
  5. Bake the macarons for 5 minutes at 160°C. Then turn the temperature down to 120°C and bake for a further 5 minutes..
  6. [Chocolate cream] Mix together the tempered chocolate and cream. The macaron shells are quite sweet so I recommend using a relatively bitter chocolate with a higher percentage of cocoa solids..
  7. Fill half of the macarons with the chocolate cream..
  8. [Chestnut cream] Mix the cooled simmered chestnuts with the cream..
  9. Use the chestnut cream to fill the remaining macarons..
