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!
