Measure almond meal, hazelnuts, and powdered sugar into the bowl of a food processor.
Process finely, and sift out any large bits.
Whip the egg whites until foamy. Add in the granulated sugar gradually, and continue to whip to stiff peaks.
Dump in the nut meal mixture all at once. Fold by hand, until combined. The mixture should drop from the spatula in a thick ribbon. If it drops in clumps, it should be folded a few more strokes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and fill a pastry bag with the macaron batter. Pipe 1 inch rounds onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow to dry for 20 minutes or until a thin, dry membrane has formed.
Drop the oven temp down to 325 and bake for 14 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet.
Chop the chocolate and heat the cream to a simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and stir until incorporated. Stir in the liqueurs and allow to cool.
Pipe about a tablespoon onto half the macaron shells and sandwich.
