Chocolate Cherry French Macarons

I had some left over macaron shells the other day and have been playing around with different fillings.

I think this chocolate and cherry one was the most delicious, the shells are french almond macaron made with the recipe in THIS POST (CLICK HERE).

Filled with a little chocolate ganache and black cherry halves and some dots of white chocolate ganache.

Then finished with another dab of ganach and a cherry.

  2. Wow, this looks absolutely sinful! chocolate + cherry = I love.

  3. What lovely little macaron sandwiches Linda! And I'm loving the recent bounty of cherries. We buy them every week now! :D
