Yield: ~20 macarons - 5 per design

[For Dark Chocolate Ganache
80g of Dark chocolate chips
80ml of Heavy cream

[For Basic Macaron Shells] 
Meringue: 70g of Egg whites + 90g of Castor sugar
80g of Almond flour
80g of Powdered/icing sugar
Black food colouring
Blue food colouring
Yellow food colouring
Red food colouring
Royal icing sugar *Optional

[For Dark Chocolate Ganache]
1. Bring heavy cream to a simmer.
2. Pour heavy cream over chocolate. Give it a shake, let it sit for 1 minute, and stir with a whisk till all the chocolate has melted. Let it cool.
3. Transfer the filling to a piping bag

[For Basic Macaron Shells] 
1. Make the meringue. In a bowl, beat the egg whites on low speed using an electric mixer until it is white and frothy (approximately 1 minute). Gradually add the sugar 1/4 at a time. When the first addition of sugar has completely dissolved (approximately 1 minute later), increase the mixer speed to medium and add until all the sugar has been incorporated. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
2. Sift the almond flour and icing sugar to the meringue.
3. Begin macaronage. Using a spatula, start the macaronage process by folding and lightly scraping the top of the batter. Continue until the wet and dry ingredients just start to combine.
4. Scoop some batter out for drawing details.
White: Scoop out 2 tablespoon of batter and transfer to a piping bag with a small tip.
- Black: Scoop out 1.5 tablespoon of batter and add black food colouring. Mix well and transfer to a piping bag with a small tip.
- Red: Scoop out 1 tablespoon of batter, add red food colouring, and transfer to a piping bag with a small tip.
5. Split the remaining batter into 4 equal portions and continue the macaronage process (until you get a molten-like mixture and drips down like a ribbon when lifted)
Pikachu: Add yellow food colouring, macaronage, and transfer to a piping bag with medium tip. Transfer some to another piping bag with a small tip.
- Charmander: Add yellow and red food colouring to get orange. Macaronage and transfer to a piping bag with medium tip.
- Squirtle: Add blue food colouring to get light blue. Macaronage and transfer to a piping bag with medium tip.
- Pokeball: Divide the batter in half, adding red food colouring to one and leaving the other as it is. Complete the macaronage and transfer to piping bags with medium tips. You should have white and red batter.
6. Pipe out batter onto baking trays lined with parchment paper. Please refer to video above for demonstration. (P.S. You can also draw on finishing details with royal icing sugar after the shells are baked)
7. Let the shells dry in an air-conditioned room. You should be able to touch it gently with the tip of your finger without it sticking.
8. Bake in a preheated oven at 150°C for approximately 10 - 13 minutes.
9. Let shells cool before filling with dark chocolate ganache.
