These Vegan Chocolate Orange Macaroons are rich-tasting, with a slightly crunchy shell, and a creamy filling.
Macarons are an absolute treat to eat, but they’re a bit tricky to make. Prepare yourself for the eventuality that you may not get these right the first time around – but try, try again! The result of this labor of love is absolutely delicious. Eating one is like drinking an orange juice on a bar of decadent dark chocolate.
Important tips on how to make the perfect Macaroons:
Basically, the truth of the post is: home ovens are very inaccurate, and don’t do a good job at keeping the temperature you set it to, or at keeping a constant temperature if that. The only way to be able to control the temperature of the oven, is to have an oven thermometer, that will tell you what the actual temperature inside of the oven is.
Another alternative if your feet are spreading out as the macarons bake, is to double pan the macarons. Which means, place the baking sheet on top of another baking sheet and bake it like that.
I also found helpful writing my own cycles on the parchment paper, as it helped me keep them identical, then pipe inside them.
