How to make Peppermint Macarons

  • Make peppermint white chocolate ganache. Use good quality white chocolate.
  • Bake macaron shells. Recipes of macaron shells you can check here. I used French merignue recipe to make these macarons. To make textured macaron shells I use Wilton 4B pipping tip. The macaronage should be a little undermixed if you want macaron shells to hold the shape and do not top baking pan after pipping shells.

Paint two or three lines of red gel food coloring up the sides of the pipping bag. Add macaronage (macaron batter) into pipping bag. To make these peppermint macarons I pained one pipping bag with red color and another with greed food color.

Tip from Marina: when you are painting pipping bag, make sure to paint pipping tip too.

  • Assemble macarons. When you have macaron shells and ganache are ready, only then assemble macarons.
