Using your hands, shape mixture into 14 balls the size of a walnut and press into domed discs.

Press a split almond into the centre of each disc and place on a baking sheet lined with silicone paper. (You’ll need two baking sheets)

Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheets.

The filling

Put the chocolate in a small bowl and place over a pan of simmering water until melted.

Add the cream cheese and the SPLENDA® Granulated then mix well together.

Sandwich two macaroons back to back with a generous portion of filling and repeat to make seven macaroons.
