I've recently become a bit obsessed with making french macarons properly (especially after seeing how much my partner loves them!) and I finally found a detailed recipe that works well for me, my own variation of this recipe
I love making these little devils! And while my partner adores them, I'd like to try some different flavors as I've only (successfully) made regular macarons with simple buttercream filing.
I am going to make chocolate next; what recipe do you use to make chocolate french macarons? Should I use my current recipe and add a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder, with a chocolate ganache filling?
What other macaron flavors have you tried and love? Ones you haven't tried yet but have eaten and love? Also, any extra tips about making macarons, specifically with flavored ones or food coloring?
