Almond Chocolate Ganache Macarons Recipe

These macarons with almond chocolate ganache are a delicate and decadent treat. The crispy almond shells are sandwiched between two layers of rich, smooth dark chocolate ganache that melts in your mouth.


Time Needed

  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour


  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor, combine the almond flour and powdered sugar until finely ground.
  • Whisk 55g egg whites in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form.
  • Combine the granulated sugar and water in a saucepan and heat over medium-high heat until the mixture reaches 118°C.
  • Pour in the hot sugar syrup in a slow and steady stream while whisking the egg whites on medium speed.
  • Increase the speed to high and whisk until the mixture cools to room temperature.
  • In three additions, fold the almond flour mixture into the meringue until a smooth batter forms.
  • Fill a piping bag with a round tip with the batter and pipe small circles onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Allow the macarons to sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes, or until a skin forms on the surface, after tapping the baking sheet on a flat surface to release any air bubbles.
  • Bake the macarons for 12-15 minutes, or until they are set and the tops are firm to the touch, in a preheated oven.
  • Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet before removing from the oven.
  • To make the ganache, in a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just begins to simmer.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until smooth and completely melted.
  • Allow the ganache to cool to room temperature before transferring to a piping bag with a small round tip.
  • Pipe a dollop of ganache onto one macaron shell's flat side and sandwich with another.
  • Refrigerate the macarons in an airtight container for up to 5 days, but bring them to room temperature before serving.
