Hazelnut dacquoise is a spongy cake base with a bit of crunch to it. Chopped hazelnuts add the crunchy part of this cake base.

Hazelnut Dacquoise Recipe

    • Place 55g egg whites in a stand mixer and mix on high speed.
    • Place water and sugar in a saucepan on medium heat and attach a candy thermometer to the saucepan to measure the temperature (we want the syrup to reach 118 degrees C).
    • While the syrup is heating up, place 55g egg whites in a large mixing bowl. Add any food coloring at this point using gel food coloring or 1/4 tsp of powdered food coloring. You could also add 1 tbsp of coffee grounds or cookie crumbs to the shells. You can add 1/4 tsp of extract as well if you want to flavor the shells. Mix the color thoroughly until the color is fully emulsified into the egg whites.

    • Add any sprinkles to the macarons at this point. Pick up the pan and bang the bottom of it to remove air bubbles. Bang the pan 3-5 times.
    • Let the macarons dry for 30 minutes.
    • Bake the macarons for 12 minutes at 300 degrees F.
    • Let the macarons fully cool. Take one of the macaron shells and match it up with a good fit for itself. Match all of your macarons and place face up.
