These cute little pink macaroons with chocolate filling look and taste fabulous as an afternoon tea with friends.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C fan, 325°F, gas mark 3). Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

  2. Blend together the icing sugar and ground almonds in a food processor to create a very fine mixture, then sift into a bowl.

  3. Place the egg whites in a clean, grease free bowl and add a pinch of salt. Whisk to soft peaks, then gradually whisk in the caster sugar until thick and glossy. Add a few drops pink colouring to this mix.

  4. Fold half of the almond and icing sugar mixture into the meringue and mix well. Then carefully add the remaining dry mixture and fold using a metal spoon or spatula until it is shiny and a thick, ribbon-like consistency. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle.

  5. Pipe small equal rounds of the macaroon mixture, about 3cm across, onto the baking sheets. Tap the baking sheet gently onto the work surface. Stand for 10-15 minutes to form a slight skin. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.

  6. For the chocolate filling, place the chocolate, double cream in a pan and heat gently until the chocolate is melted. Add the brandy and butter and beat into a smooth consistency. Pipe or spread the filling on half of the macaroons and then sandwich together.
