Chocolate French Macarons are delicious delicate french cookies that get sandwiched with a dark chocolate ganache to take them over the top.
A while back I posted all about the tips and tricks I learned from making french macarons over the summer. I intended to post the recipe for these chocolate macs sooner, but life happens. Anyway, here they finally are! In case you missed my tips and tricks, see French Macarons 101 for all you need to know.
I went from hating to loving these temperamental, delicious cookies. They frustrate me like no other sometimes, but when the stars align and you get the technique just right, they can be so rewarding!
I prefer to weigh my measurements when making French Macarons because they are so finicky. However, I've included both gram and cup measurements in the recipe so you can do whichever you choose! Enjoy.
