Ironically, I have never had a store bought macaron before. But if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck… I suppose it will taste like a parisian macaron? I hope so!
I based my recipe from Vitalife but this is what I used:
1 cup almond powder
1 cup icing sugar
2 teaspoon Booster juice matcha powder
3 egg whites, at room temperature
3-1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
I also topped some of mine with crushed pistachio. Some were slightly cracked, but I think it was because it was a humid day (I let them sit out for over an hour before baking them and the skin was still not fully formed). I will test this recipe again on a cooler day, and possibly with 3/4 cup almond powder (instead of 1 cup). Keep you updated.
Earl grey macarons in the oven. Have you ever played bomberman on Playstation? These reminds me of those super powerful soggy looking grey bombs haha.

For the chocolate ganache, I used the recipe from Anna Olson (equal parts of whipping cream and chocolate chips). I found the mixture too runny and added another block of Baker’s chocolate – still too runny. Ended up whipping it on high speed with an electric mixer for a minute and it was perfect for filling! Note that the colour does tend to be lighter after whipping. For different flavours, I separated them into different batches. I put 1 tbsp Baileys (irish cream liquer) into a 1/2 cup ganache mixture, and 1 tbsp brandy into another 1/2 cup ganache mixture
