French Chocolate macarons Recipe

Prepare baking sheets.

Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Sift the dry ingredients:

In a medium bowl, sift together almond flour, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder. Discard any large pieces that don’t pass through the sieve.

Whip egg whites:

In a separate, clean, and dry bowl, whip the egg whites using an electric mixer until they become frothy. Gradually add granulated sugar while continuing to whip. Whip until you get stiff, glossy peaks. Add vanilla extract and mix until combined.


Gently fold the sifted dry ingredients into the whipped egg whites. This step is called macaronage. Be gentle to maintain the airiness of the batter. The batter should be smooth and have a thick, ribbon-like consistency.

Pipe the macarons:

Transfer the batter to a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe small circles onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving space between each one.

Resting Time:

Let the piped macarons rest at room temperature for about 20–30 minutes. This allows a thin shell to form on the surface.


Bake the macarons in the preheated oven for 12–15 minutes, or until they have formed feet and are set. The exact time may vary, so keep an eye on them.

Make the ganache filling.

While the macarons are baking, prepare the chocolate ganache filling. Heat the heavy cream until it just starts to simmer. Pour it over the finely chopped dark chocolate. Let it sit for a minute, and then stir until smooth. Add the butter and stir until combined.


Allow the baked macaron shells to cool completely. Match them up in pairs of similar sizes. Pipe or spoon a small amount of the chocolate ganache onto one shell and sandwich it with another.


Place the assembled macarons in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving. This allows the flavors to meld and the texture to develop.

  • Macaron Batter

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup powdered almonds

  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 large egg whites, at room temperature

  • A pinch of salt

  • 5 tbsp. granulated sugar

  • Chocolate Ganache Filling
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 120g bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped or in chips

  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter (optional)


  • Sift the Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the powdered sugar, powdered almonds, and cocoa powder. This ensures a smooth, lump-free mixture, crucial for the delicate texture of the macarons.
  • Beat the Egg Whites: In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they begin to rise and hold their shape. Gradually add the granulated sugar and continue beating until the whites are thick, glossy, and form stiff peaks. This is the meringue, the airy base of your macarons.
  • Fold in the Dry Ingredients: Gently fold the sifted dry ingredients into the meringue, using a spatula. This step, known as macaronage, is crucial: under-mixing will leave your macarons lumpy, while over-mixing can make them too flat.
  • Prepare for Piping: Transfer the batter into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe the batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets in small circles, evenly spaced apart.
  • Rest the Macarons: Once piped, tap the baking sheets firmly on a flat surface to remove air bubbles. Allow the macarons to rest at room temperature until they form a skin on the surface, about 30 minutes. This helps achieve the iconic ‘feet’ when they bake.
  • Bake: Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Bake the macarons for 10-15 minutes, until they’re set and have a smooth, crisp shell. Allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet before filling.
  • Chocolate Ganache Filling
  • Heat the Cream: Pour the heavy cream into a small saucepan and heat it over medium heat until it begins to simmer.
  • Melt the Chocolate: Place the chopped chocolate (or chips) in a separate bowl. Once the cream is hot, pour it over the chocolate and let it sit for a minute to soften the chocolate. Then, whisk until the mixture is smooth and glossy. If you’re using butter, add it now, whisking until fully incorporated.
  • Chill: Allow the ganache to cool until it thickens to a spreadable consistency. You can expedite this by putting it in the refrigerator, but stir it occasionally to keep the consistency even.
  • Assembly
  • Fill the Macarons: Match macaron shells into pairs of similar size. Using a piping bag, pipe a small amount of ganache onto the flat side of one macaron in each pair.
  • Sandwich Together: Gently press the matching macaron on top of the ganache, creating a sandwich. Be careful not to use too much force to avoid cracking the shells.
  • Rest: Place the filled macarons in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. This maturation stage allows the flavors to meld together and the filling to soften the macaron shells slightly, achieving the perfect texture.
  • Serve: Bring the macarons to room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving. This enhances their flavor and texture.
