Nutella Hazelnut Macarons

Nutella Macarons

All you need is love but a little bit of Nutella does not hurt, right?

Nutella is simply divine on it’s own, personally I do not like it on bread, but nothing beats Nutella in a cookie sandwich and it makes a fast and delicious filling for macarons too!

I did also use some Nutella in the shells and brushed it in a small stroke to the otherwise pale shells.If you want darker shells, I recommend using cocoa powder, as adding too much nutella in the meringue might change the texture.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C.
  2. Line three baking sheets with silicone baking sheets or baking paper.
  3. Divide egg whites placing 80 grams in your mixing bowl.
  4. In a bowl combine ground almonds, powdered sugar, remaining egg whites and nutella and mix until fully incorporated.
  5. Place the granulated sugar and water in a small sauce pan and put it on the stove on medium heat, at the same time start whisking the egg whites in your mixing bowl on medium high speed.
  6. Bring the sugar to boil and let it boil for one minute until it comes a thick syrup, then lower the whisking of egg whites to low speed and slowly pour the syrup into the foam.
  7. Turn whisking on high speed and continue whisking for about 7 minutes until you get stiff and glossy peaks.
  8. Combine the meringue with almond paste by gently folding using a spatula or a big spoon.
  9. Place into a piping bag and pipe the macaron shells onto your baking sheet.
  10. Gently tap the baking sheet few times on the counter to break any possible air bubble in the batter.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, until you can lift them off the baking sheet.
  12. Dip a icing brush into drop of nutella and paint a tiny stroke on top of each shell while they are still warm.
  13. Line up in pairs and leave to cool down completely before filling.
  14. Pipe nutella in circles on the flat side of the shells and sprinkle crushed hazelnuts on top.
  15. Top with another shell to make a sandwich.
