Orange and Chocolate MacaronsOrange and Chocolate Macarons

I made these delicious and cute orange and chocolate macarons for the very first time and I must say they turned out so tasty! I’ve always seen those yummy recipes out there. Seemed to me like a cookie sandwich filled with yummy cream or jelly and I really had no idea what they really were.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wholeport.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

Then I started to read many recipes and OMG I said to myself, “I have to make these soon”. The awesome part is that Wholeport {they are not longer in business sadly} sent me all the supplies I needed to make them and how could I not make them, right??? I also love those flavors together so I thought it would be a good idea to make orange and chocolate macarons.

If you don’t know what’s Wholeport, they are a Chinese craft supplier. They are a go-to place for finding the widest variety of affordable craft supplies online and they have been dedicated to ensure a quality crafting experience. In my opinion the products I’ve got so far are great. I received some really awesome baking products in the past and I made my popular “Nutella Stuffed Vanilla Cupcakes Topped with Chocolate Covered Strawberry” I’m very happy with my products and eager to bake more with them. If you have some time stop by and check their site out.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Egg whites
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups Icing sugar
  • 1 tsp of finely grated orange rind
  • Orange food coloring

 

Chocolate cream

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4-5 tbsp of sweetened chocolate powder {like Nesquick}

 

Direction

With a mixer beat the egg whites in a small bowl until soft peaks form. Add caster sugar and a few drops of food coloring, mix until sugar dissolves.

Transfer the mixture to a larger bowl and fold in the icing sugar and orange rind.

Spoon mixture into the Pastry Tubes or piping bag. Pipe on the Silicone Mat for Macaron rounds about 4 cm {1 1/2  Inch}. I sprinkled some orange rind on top.

Tap trays on bench so macarons spread and get even look {I didn’t do this, but I got the tip from Anyonita Nibbles (wink)}.

Stand for about 30 minutes.

In the meantime, pre-heat the oven to 150ºC/300ºF and make the cream.

In a small pan over low heat mix condensed milk, butter and chocolate with a whisk. Keep whisking constantly until it thickens. It should have the texture of a custard and when it cools it gets even thicker. Turn off the heat.

Bake macarons for about 15-20 minutes and cool on trays. I used my new cute oven mitts to hold the trays!
