Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache Filling

I guess I could say my obsession with macarons started about 2 years ago when I had my first macaron at Lindt Cafe on Collins street in Melbourne City. They looked cute, colourful and tasted super delicious. Ofcourse at the time I wasnt sure what to expect from a macaron but these ones seemed to do the trick. Ever since then I have been on my own macaron journey where I have tasted really good macarons and others which were pretty horrible and stale. In the meantime I had decided to start trying out my own macarons from various recipes, so I mostly knew what to look for in a good macaron. With my many failed attempts at different recipes, I have finally found one that always works everytime. The recipe I use is an adaptation of the BraveTart recipe with the chocolate flavour variation. Before these chocolate macarons, I did my fair share of experimenting with coloured macarons as well as naturally flavoured pistachio and lemon, however their textures have not turned out as good as the chocolate ones. Chocolate macarons in my opinion are also the best ones! So here is my long awaited chocolate macaron with chocolate ganache filling recipe requested by many friends!
