Main Ingredients



Make the macarons following the Foundation macaron recipe (see linked recipes), adding red food colouring.


To make raspberry ganache, put chocolate buttons and cream in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure bottom of bowl does 
not touch water, until chocolate is melted. 
Add raspberry extract and extra food colouring. Stir well. Set aside for 30-40 minutes or until ganache has thickened.


Spoon ganache into a piping bag 
fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle. Pipe 
a little ganache onto 1 macaron, then sandwich with a second macaron. Repeat with remaining macarons and ganache. 
Serve immediately, or arrange on oven 
trays and refrigerate or freeze overnight.
