French Macarons w/ Brigadeiro Filling


French Macarons
  • 100 grams egg whites
  • 50 grams sugar
  • 200 grams confectioner's sugar
  • 110 grams ground almonds
Brigadeiro Filling
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa


1_ Make Meringue: Beat egg whites using an electric/hand mixer until foamy, and slowly add the sugar. Mix until glossy and soft (like whipped cream)

2_ Sift the almonds and confectioner's sugar and combine with the meringue. Fold them about 30 times ("cut" the middle, then bring left side over to the right with a spatula)

3_ Place the batter into a pastry bag with a round tip, and pipe disks onto a baking sheet. Let it rest for about 1 hour until dry, then bake for about 10 min at 285°F.

4_ Make the Brigadeiro filling: cook the butter, cocoa, and condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat for about 10 min (mixing constantly until thick)

5_ Let the cookies and brigadeiro cool completely before filling, and enjoy your French Brazilian Macarons! 😀
