53 gr regular sugar (1/4 cup)

Instructions

Mix 2 egg whites and regular sugar by hand to combine.

Using a KitchenAid mixer mix egg whites and sugar for 2 minutes using speed 4.

After 2 minutes, increase speed to 6 and mix 2 minutes.

Again, after 2 minutes, increase speed to 8 and mix for 2 minutes.

Add pink color and mix 30 seconds at high speed.

Next step is very, very important.

Folding: Cut through the meringue and then fold up and over.

Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.

Add second half of the almond flour mixture and fold using the method above.

Now, the most important question is:

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO FOLD?

pink macarons from the best food blog 5starcookies-add almond flour and mix until batter flows like lava
pink macarons from the best food blog 5starcookies-add almond flour and mix until batter flows like lava

You need to fold until batter flows like lava.

If this answer is confusing, just check the videos of lava or just check lava cakes.

You need to get feeling of your final product.

Another answer is that the batter will fall back into the bowl in a thick ribbon.

Next step is to scoop batter into bag about 2/3 full.

Twist off the top and pipe macarons into desired size.

pink macarons from the best food blog 5starcookies-pipe macarons into desired size

Slam or tap your pan 3 times against the counter to release air bubbles.

Let the macarons sit at room temperature for about 45 to 60 minutes.

Macarons will form top skin.

You will be able to touch them and they will not stick to your finger.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Bake macarons for 11 minutes or just test them.

When you touch the top macarons and they are not moving, it is done.

Remove from the oven and cool.

The best balls in life – Chocolate Cake Balls

Chocolate Cake Balls from 5starcookies
Chocolate Cake Balls from 5starcookies

What if your shadow wakes up before you, real you because the windows, walls and doors are screaming: “You have no balls in this life?

You loser. What is your problem?”

Just for a moment you get confused and you say to yourself: “Am I watching CNN?  Does somebody try to wash my brain because I did not

take shower last night? What is happening in this life?”

“Nothing, silly” , some creepy voice  answered. It is me.

Your Cookie from 5 star cookies trying to make introduction for my new food post called “The best chocolate cake balls”.

Fuck off you bitch! You scare me! Why is everything today about exploring “vulnerable part of people personality”.

“I don’t know, “- I tell my shadow in my best Barbara Walters voice. Like I said I am here for you.

“So, how come I woke up before you? You lying son of a bitch …why did you let me if you care”-my shadow asks.

Well, I was about to answer in my deep, concern voice when my alarm started and real me woke up.

Hello sunshine – sings my plate. Let’s grab life by the balls. CAKE BALLS! Ready?

Chocolate Cake Balls from 5starcookies - the best cake balls
Chocolate Cake Balls from 5starcookies – the best cake balls

Of course I am!  I am ready to make the best chocolate cake balls.

So, all my ballsy friends let’s start with the ingredients.

You will need:

1 cup of cake crumbs

2 Tbsp melted chocolate

1/2 TBSP rum

1/2 tsp orange oil

Directions:

Prepare the cake. I used the cake recipe from Nutella Chocolate Love Cake. Follow the link:Cake Recipe

Crumb small part of the cake in order to have 1 cup cake crumbs. ( What to do with the rest of the cake? I will explain soon….)

Melt chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of simmering water making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water,

then leave to cool.

When chocolate is cool, add 1 cup of cake crumbs, 1/2 Tbsp rum and mix. You will need to use your muscle.

Keep mixing until the mixture looks happy to you. Trust me you will know. Extreme mixing is important.

Then, add orange oil and mix again.

Now, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. You will get  10 balls.

Chill 3 to 4 hr.

TIME FOR A BREAK…CHOCOLATE BREAK!

Chocolate Cake Balls
Chocolate Cake Balls

Now, you are ready to coat.

I am sending you love with all the angels singing behind and above me…

who just reminded me about Taylor Swift Grammy Acceptance Speech

“As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.

But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there.

And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment”

LOVE, INSPIRE… AND BAKE
