Chocolate French Macarons

I’m trying this lady’s recipe next!

Macarons! These small round French biscuits are crispy and chewy at the same time. A delicate treat that never fails to lift my spirit!

My love for them started 5 years ago when I had my first Macaron. It was filled with a rich dark chocolate ganache that complemented the crisp and tender shells. But they are expensive little treats that can cost around £1.70 for a single one!

With no income at the time and a very sweet tooth, I wanted to recreate these Macarons at my very own kitchen. To be honest, I tried a good few attempts to perfect the recipe and technique that I am going to share with you. It either cracked on the top, or it didn’t have the distinctive foot Macarons are known for. But finally I have the recipe that reminds me the very first time I tried these dainty treats.
