Serves: 18 Macarons


  • 1 cup blanched almond meal, sifted
  • 15g cacao powder, sifted
  • 3 egg whites (90g), at room temperature
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 2 cups icing sugar, sifted
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup (125g) Nutella or chocolate spread
  • ½ cup (65g) icing sugar
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tbs (20ml) thickened cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of sea salt flakes
  1. Place your TupperChef ™ Baking Sheet to the side.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add sifted almond meal and cacao powder, before mixing together with a spatula. Set aside.
  3. Using the SuperSonic, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add the caster sugar and icing sugar, making sure to continuously beat the mixture until stiff peaks form.
  4. Gently and carefully fold through the almond meal and cacao mixture until combined.
  5. To create the macaron shells, pour mixture into a decorating bag and pipe 36 rounds onto the lined baking tray.
  6. Preheat oven to 140°C.
  7. Leave the shells to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes or until the tops are firm when touched.
  8. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until just golden.
  9. Turn off oven and open the door, but leave shells in the oven for a further 15 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  11. Add all ingredients for the macaron filling into a small mixing bowl. Beat together with KP Beater.
  12. To assemble macarons, pipe a small amount of the filling onto a shell and then sandwich with a second shell. Top each macaron with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes. Repeat this step until all shells have been assembled
  13. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.
  • To remove any peaks on the shell after piping, tap your tray twice on the bench before leaving to rest.
  • For a choc mint variation: add 2–3 drops of peppermint essence into the macaron mix and a ½ tsp into the filling.
  • For a choc chilli variation: add in ¼ – ½ tsp chilli powder into the macaron mix and sprinkle macaron tops with additional chili powder.
