Easy and Simple Chocolate Macaroons

Updated on January 11, 2017
5 stars from 1 rating of Chocolate Macaroons

These Macaroons are delicious and very easy to make. I tend to make these when I have some left over egg white to save on wastage. They can be a bit messy however they can be great fun to make with kids.

These are a great compliment to chocolate mousse puddings or brilliant on their own.

After they are made they need to be stored in an air tight container for a maximum of 2-3 days. Though I am sure they wont last that long.


Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 12 min
Ready in: 32 min
Yields: Approximately 25


  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 100g Ground Almonds
  • 40g Cocoa Powder
  • 180g Icing Sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with greaseproof or baking paper
  2. Mix togther the egg whites (not beaten) with the ground almonds, icing sugar and cocoa powder. This should form a sticky mixture that binds easily
  3. Fill a large bowl with cold water to keep your hands wet while working the mixture. Keep dipping your hands while handling the mixture to stop the mixture from sticking to you
  4. Work the mixture into small walnut sized balls (approximately 25), though if they are irregular shaped or different sizes it really does not matter
  5. Arrange these on the baking tray, evenly spaced to ensure they dont amalgamate. Bake them in the preheated oven for 12 minutes
  6. After the 12 minutes they look underdone however once cooled they are beautifully sticky and crispy.

      I love macaroons but the old fashioned coconut macaroons. I've never tried chocolate macaroons and this looks easy to make. Passing the recipe along to my daughter (and the whole HP community). I'm sure I'll have fun with her in the kitchen baking this. Thanks for sharing. I'll let you know, if I succeed.
