Macarons with chocolate ganache and raspberry
Ok just a quick post on the new We Should Cocoa monthly chocolate challenge.
When one of the blogs I read mentioned they were having a monthly chocolate challenge I knew I would be up for it straight away, as though I need another reason to make chocolate treats.
The first challenge was hosted by Chele from Chocolate Teapot and Chele chose Chocolate and Raspberry combination for the first ever We Should Cocoa challenge.
Yum, great combination Chele. I made French Almond Macaron with dark chocolate ganache and raspberries. They were super delicious.
Pretty much I just followed my regular macaron recipe (click here for a version), coloured pink and piped a little larger than normal, filled it with chocolate ganace (150ml cream to 300g dark chocolate) and popped the rasberries on top before sandwiching the lid on.
Viola delicious fresh rasberry and chocolate macaron and we should cocoa challenge complete.
