Second try at macarons - chocolate with milk chocolate and passionfruit ganache

This time i overcompensated for overmixing my first batch, and undermixed. They barely spread at all on the tray.


I should have put the mixture back in the bowl and folded for longer after i'd piped the first few and realised. They still tasted nice though.


I don't think i'll make this flavour again - it was nice, but i prefer my chocolate and my passionfruit separate. In the mix of flavours, the sharpness of the passionfruit and the creaminess of the chocolate seemed to nullify each other, and these are the parts i enjoy about each.

Now for a third try!
