Last weekend I made chocolate macarons! I followed Edd Kimber’s macaron recipe on the BBC Good Food website again, as I had good results with this recipe the first time I made macarons. However, this recipe is for plain shells and as I wanted to make chocolate shells, I made some adjustments. I decided to add some cocoa powder on top of the existing quantities of ground almonds and icing sugar to see what would happen. Well, whilst still being yummy, they turned out to be very hard, dry and chewy! Next time, I will remove some of the icing sugar and replace this with the cocoa powder to see if that works better. These were filled with a dark chocolate ganache which works really nicely with the chocolate shells. If you love chocolate, you will love these little beauties!
