Cheeseburger Macarons

Miniature burgers, but not as you know it. These tiny bites aren't made of Aberdeen Angus and plastic cheese I'm afraid, but instead Nutella and a slice of cleverly coloured chocolate. With my trusty basic macaron recipe by my side, I thought I'd go all topsy turvy with a hamburger macaron recipe. Although I didn't add any greenery to the recipe (so it isn't your five a day I'm afraid...) so I guess it's a cheeseburger macaron recipe - easy on the salad! 

Hamburger Macarons
Burger Macaron Recipe

Shopping list.

(Makes 12 medium or 24 mini)
♥ Two egg whites, preferably aged for 1-3 days in the fridge 
♥ 75g caster sugar 
♥ 90g icing sugar 
♥ 75g ground almonds, sieved until fine 
♥ Brown, or orange food colouring.
♥ Nutella

♥ Sesame seeds
♥ Yellow modelling chocolate

Begin by following the macaron tutorial, with a light brown, or orange/yellow food gel. I used the tiniest drop of Sugarflair's "Autumn Leaf" to create a light burger bap shade.

Step one. When you've piped the macarons, scatter sesame seeds on top whilst the shells form and dry. This will take at least 15 minutes until they are dry to the touch.

Step two. Bake for 15 minutes, only checking the oven at 10. Allow to completely cool before removing from the tray.

Step three. In this time, prepare your "fake cheese" chocolatey goodness. I bought some yellow coloured Belgian chocolate from eBay which turned out to be the perfectly awful cheese single shade.

Step four. Roll out the chocolate between cling film or a sandwich bag, cut into small squares and keep in the fridge until ready.

Step five. Fill a piping bag with Nutella, or hazelnut chocolate spread. Pipe evenly onto the macaron shells.

Step six. Complete the burger with a slice of "cheese" and the other half of the bun. Sorry no five a day here!

And enjoy your little burger macaron bite!
