Almonds are a subtle flavour and macaroons tend to be flavoured with all sorts of additions to the buttercream...can't see why hazelnuts wouldn't work apart from having a more pronounced flavour which you would account for in your flavour matchings. A chocolate ganache would be perfect with hazelnuts.

Ok, so theoretically it should be ok? I suppose since I've never made them before I was hoping someone would be able to say they had done it successfully!

What about pistachios?

I can't see why it wouldn't work using ground hazelnuts.

almonds and coconut work - you could theoretcially use any type of ground nut.

I would love to try making these but don't like almonds! Have found recipes with some of the almonds substituted, but not the whole quantity. Anyone know if they would work if I just used hazelnuts, for example?
