Macaroons Recipe

I am always on the lookout for a sweet treat that is not too calorific.  This one is really easy to make and fills the sweet tooth need.  Maybe you might like it.



2 egg (whites)
3/4 cup of castor sugar
100g melted chocolate
100g almond meal


  1. Pre heat the oven to 160 degrees celcius in a convection oven.
  2. Beat the egg white until they form stiff peaks.
  3. Slowly add the sugar while beating .  The mixture will look glossy when you have completed this step.
  4. Carefully fold in the melted chocolate and almond meal.
  5. Using a teaspoon place drops of the mixture on a baking tray covered in baking paper.
  6. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
This recipe is sensitive to humidity which can cause the macaroons to collapse.
