3. Add the flour and sugar to the beaten egg whites, bit by bit and stir with a spatula, even if you find the egg white in a liquid form at the bottom continue mixing till you reach a creamy look that is smooth.
4. Pour in the mixture in a baking tray and allow to air dry for approximately 1 or 2 hours allowing it to form the skin of macaroons.
5. In an heated oven (160ºC) cook for 10 to 11 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to keep the oven door slightly open and to rotate the tray about 5 minutes after placing it in the oven.
6. Remove the macaroons of the oven and transfer them to a sheet of paper. When cold, with a metal spatula or paring knife, pass underneath each macaroon to remove the paper.
7. Remove them from the oven and make sure they do not stick together by allowing them to cool a little bit.
8. Put the cream in a container and ensure that the mixture boils, remove from the heat and stir with some chocolate, stir gently without creating any bubbles till the chocolate is completely melted, then leave it cool in the fridge for an hour or two.
