Dark Chocolate Macarons

Basic Chocolate Macaron Batter (I found this recipe on davidlebovitz.com):
Makes about 18 finished cookies
Weighing the ingredients is critical. Do not make these unless you have a digital kitchen scale!
100 gram powdered sugar
50 grams almond meal aka almond flour (the finer the better)
25 grams unsweetened cocoa powder
2 large room temperature egg whites
65 grams granulated sugar

For chocolate ganache:

  • 1/3 cup hot heavy cream
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • *pour hot cream over chocolate, and stir until smooth. Allow to cool slightly before filling cooled cookies.
