During the summer, my Brownie Skillet Cake was featured on University of Pennsylvania’s student-run food magazine Penn Appetit. Today, I’m very excited to announce my second submission: Chocolate Hazelnut French Macarons. This dessert contains a huge “wow”-factor, so check out the delicious post below!
No dessert is as sophisticated or as technical as a perfectly crafted French macaron. And finally, for my friend’s birthday, I decided rise up to the challenge. It’s true that these cookies are pretty tricky to make, but after diligently watching a few YouTube videos, I was ready for battle. Patience is certainly required to achieve this ideal sandwich, but with their shiny shells and puffed “feet,” they were incredibly delicious and extremely rewarding. Their chocolate hazelnut flavor is absolutely phenomenal, and honestly, filling them purely with Nutella would taste just as good! For you fearless chefs out there, give this recipe a try; you’re not a daring baker unless you’ve conquered the French macaron!

Good job! They look absolutely beautiful and delicious!
They look beautiful. I love making macarons. People adore them. Gesine Bullock-Prado’s recipe is easy to follow as well. I don’t believe there’s a video. But it’s my go-to. Nutella as a filling is something I need to try next. :)
I’ll check it out! I’d love to make more macaron recipes in the future
I’ve always wanted to make macarons. Yours are beautiful!

I spotted a kind of gross one on this chart, black licorice.. ewww why would they make such a flavor?? I guess someone in the world likes it though . hehehe.

These look beautiful! I’ve tried making macaroons multiple times and I’ve only succeeded a few. I can never get the “feet” to appear and I was wondering if I could ask you for some help :) Yours just look so amazing!
Hugs and puppies!

Thank you! I’d recommend following the video below. Make sure to let the macarons sit before baking, since that’s whats most responsible for creating the “feet.”
Ahhh! Thanks! I’ll definitely check it out :)
