153. Opera Macarons

I haven't been all that well these 2 weeks and was looking forward to the weekend. Today was supposed to be a lazy Saturday - I was going to spend it catching up on my lack of rest and hopefully quickly recuperate from my backahes by napping. But alas! It wasn't meant to be.

The Hubs requested for me to make these, using a recipe he personally selected off Tastespotting. Opera macarons! They're made with egg whites, sugar, ground almonds and ground hazelnuts. Each pair of shells were filled with Coffee buttercream and a Dark Chocolate ganache centre. It was real yummy! A little sweet, but good nonetheless! The Hubs and both Brother-in-laws said they were "Damn good lah"! Success!



















I'm not too sure if I really want to start making these for orders, but do enquire if you're interested. If your required quantity is good as a batch, I will consider making them again - and this time round, with as much less sugar as I can possibly get out of the recipe as possible, without screwing up its texture!
