Sweets with caramel cream

These crispy French macaroons are so fluffy and delicious. But don’t be fooled by the appearance, not one chef and pastry chef got burned on them. But it can’t happen to you! Why? Because if you follow our procedure, the path to macaroons will be a walk in a rose garden.

What will we need

For lovebirds

  1. 150 g of granulated sugar
  2. 60 ml of water
  3. 60 ml egg whites (about 2 large egg whites)
  4. 150 g ground almonds (or almond flour)
  5. 150 g of powdered sugar
  6. 60 ml egg whites (about 2 large egg whites)
  7. A few drops of yellow food coloring (optional)

For the caramel filling

  1. 175 g granulated sugar
  2. 60 ml of water
  3. 120 ml thick whipping cream
  4. 175 g butter (cut into cubes)
  5. ½ teaspoon of salt


  1. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan
  2. Heat them over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, increase the heat to medium high and let the syrup boil
  4. Meanwhile, add the first 60 ml of egg whites to a medium-sized, heat-resistant bowl and mix until thick and firm snow is formed
  5. Once the syrup boils, cook for another 2-3 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat and slowly pour the hot syrup into the bowl with the beaten egg whites, stirring constantly to prevent the egg whites from curdling
  6. Once all the syrup has been added, continue mixing until the bottom of the bowl feels cool to the touch and the snow has cooled to room temperature
  7. If we are using food coloring, add it to the mixture and mix briefly until the snow acquires a uniform color
  8. Line large trays with baking paper
  9. Preheat the oven to 140 degrees
  10. In a large bowl, mix ground almonds, powdered sugar and remaining egg whites until a paste forms
  11. Using a rubber spatula, mix one third of the snow into the almond paste
  12. Once a third is mixed, carefully stir in the remaining two thirds of the snow
  13. Pour the dough into a pastry bag with a large tip with a diameter of 1.5 cm
  14. Use the bag to make snowdrops
  15. Once all the lollipops are done, let them rest on the baking sheet for 45-60 minutes at room temperature
  16. Once the lollipops have rested, place them in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the lollipops can be easily removed from the baking paper
  17. Let the lollipops cool to room temperature before filling
  18. While the sweets are resting or cooling down, we will prepare the caramel filling
  19. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan.
  20. Heat them over a medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves, then increase the heat and bring the mixture to a boil, cook the sugar syrup until it turns into caramel
  21. Meanwhile, add the cream to a small saucepan and heat on a low heat until the cream begins to boil
  22. As soon as we are satisfied with the color of the caramel, we take it off the heat and immediately whisk in the hot cream
  23. Add half the butter and beat until incorporated
  24. Then dip the bottom of the pan into a cold water bath, add the remaining butter and beat until the caramel thickens
  25. Cool the caramel in the fridge or freezer
  26. After cooling, beat it with a mixer until it doubles in volume and lightens in color
  27. Then stir in the salt
  28. We pair the lollipops according to size and fill each pair with a teaspoon of salted caramel filling

Store marshmallows in an airtight container or in the refrigerator, but always serve them warmed to room temperature. Sweets are even better the next day!

  3. Roast the nuts for about 5 to 6 minutes, until they are fragrant and the skins are dark brown

  13. When the milk is just below the boiling point, remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly
  14. Return the mixture to the pot and start to cook on medium heat, while whisking constantly, bring the mixture to a gentle boil and cook for about 1 minute
  15. Add the mixture to the bowl and beat for about 8 minutes, then gradually add the butter and beat to a creamy consistency
  16. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees for the sweets
  17. Sift the almond flour and icing sugar into a large bowl and mix
  18. Make a well in the middle and pour in 80 ml of egg whites and mix thoroughly, then stir in the praline cream and mix thoroughly again
  19. Mix the remaining 90 ml of egg whites with 240 g of sugar and water in a small pan, which we heat over medium-high heat
  20. Allow the egg whites to boil and add a pinch of sugar, then immediately remove the egg whites from the heat and beat until stiff peaks form.
  21. Mix a third of the snow into the almond mixture, mix thoroughly, and then add the rest
  22. Transfer the snow to a pastry bag and start drawing lovelies on the baking paper
  23. Put the tray with the lollipops in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 150 degrees and bake them for 9 to 12 minutes until the tops are shiny and crispy
  24. Let the baked sweets cool completely
  25. Transfer the hazelnut cream to a pastry bag and decorate ½ of the lollipops with it and fold the other half

Pretzels are best when individually wrapped in several layers of cling film and frozen for at least 24 hours or up to 2 weeks.
Thaw the marshmallows in the refrigerator for 3 hours, and let them warm to room temperature before serving.
Laskonky can be served on the day of production or stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
