- Creamy Tia Maria caramel preparation (to be prepare 1 day ahead)
Hydrate the gelatin in cold water. In a small pot, bring the cream to a boil. In a large pot, heat up the water with the 260 g of sugar, until you reach a blond caramel coloration. Turn down the heat and pour the cream slowly and whisking well until you get a homogenous texture on low heat. In a bowl, mix the egg yolks and 25g sugar and whisk well. Add this mixture to the caramel and cook it slowly with a maximum temperature of 80°C. Add in the Tia Maria to stop the cooking and add in the gelatin In a large bowl, place the white chocolate. Pour the caramel mixture on the white chocolate and mix with a wooden spoon.
- Preparing the macaroons
The day before, separate the whites from the yolks and keep the whites at room temperature in an airtight container. In the cutter, put the almond powder and the icing sugar, mix it for a minute and pass it through a sieve. In the bowl of a kitchen aid mixer begin whipping the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Whip them until they get fluffy and start detaching from the sides of the bowl. At this stage add in the sugar and continue whipping for a few minutes until it thickens and gets shiny. Combine the egg whites with the remaining dry ingredients by folding it with a spatula. Mix a little bit more rapidly in the end until you get a smooth, almost toothpaste like, texture. Fill a pastry bag lined with a small plain tip with this mixture. Pipe the mix into little discs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Dry for 5 to 10 minutes and then bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
