I was under the impression that Dessert girl can use chocolate since that is what cocoa is, unprocessed chocolate, but that she didn't have any chocolate on hand. I don't think it has to do with allergies. Although carob is fabulous even if you don't have allergies. As for a filling - a simple white icing recipe [made with shortening or butter and powdered sugar - beat with a mixer] will do, just substitute some of the powdered sugar with the cocoa and whip it until it is a fluffy enough consistency to fill a macarons. You could even kick it up a bit with some peppermint extract or orange. Hope that helps - as that is what I always do. If you need a fluffier consistency you may have to add a few drops of water - but you will have to whip it for a long time. Have patience. Good luck.
