Chocolate Ganache Macarons

Ohhhh macarons: how I adore you!

Why do these little beauties melt in your mouth so perfectly? Why are they such an amazing cookie? Why do they cause me so much anxiety each time I attempt to make them? I mean, they are completely worth it when the end result is the chocolatey amazingness I have to share today.

It’s funny how these little treats have become such a special item in our home. Admittedly, I stress out a little bit each time I put a batch in the oven. I know that not all of my shells will turn out perfectly, but hey: that’s life. However, when the shells do come out with a frilly foot and can be filled with something delicious (this time: chocolate ganache), I am over the moon. It is honestly hard to bring myself to share them.

I have to laugh at the fact that my husband actually requests these for a treat. Before we met, I doubt he could even pronounce the name. But he’s been sucked into the awesomeness of the cookie, what can I say?

Now that I’m home for a few weeks, the opportunity to put some time and love into a batch of macarons is definitely a plus. I can spend a little bit of time in the late morning/afternoon to prepare and assemble…and can despair by myself if they fall flat.

What is your favorite flavor of macaron to enjoy?

If you’re looking for some other macaron flavors…I’ve also made a Chocolate Coconut version, as well as a Chocolate with Kahlua Buttercream (clearly, I like chocolate a lot…)!
