  • I hope this will clarify once and for all the dilema you may have in your life about the macaron and the macaroon ahahahahahah
  • As usual measure all ingredients with a digital scale as they are very accurate. Here i am using a bench top mixer and i have double this recipe. You can double it or triple it easily without any concern. I have pre heated my oven at 160 C in fan forced setting. Place your egg white in the mixing bowl.
  • Whisk at high speed. Measure half of your sugar to go into the egg white and the other half to mix with the egg yolks.
  • When you start to see the egg white rising and traces of the whisk in the egg whites, start to had progressively your sugar as per a meringue. I personally add a third of the sugar to the egg white and wait 30 seconds then another third, wait 30 seconds then the last. Once done keep it aside.
  • Add the other half of sugar to the yolks.
  • Mix the yolks and sugar together until a little paler.
  • Add a third of the meringue to the yolks and fold in.
  • Fold in the meringue making sure there is no lumps of sugary yolks.
  • Then add a third of the dessicated coconut and fold in.
  • alternate and repeat the folding process with the meringue.
  • Then the rest of the coconut untill it is all combined
  • Once done, prepare a tray with baking paper or a silicon mat. Shape little rock of coconut mixture or balls by hands.
  • place them on a tray, leaving a little space between them for an even cooking and air flow.
  • Bake them at 160 c fanforced oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Once baked, let them cool down on the tray for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile melt your chocolate over Bain-Marie or microwave.
  • Dip the bottom or feet of youyour macaroon into the chocolate, trim the excess and place it onto a piece of baking paper and let them set.
  • Voila, Bon appetit
