How to make coconut cream ganache

In the sauce pan warm up coconut cream and glucose syrup. Pour hot mixture over the white chocolate. Let it sit for a minute or so. After that emulsify with hand blender. When ganache will be 35C (95F), add room temperature unsalted butter and coconut rum. Emulsify again. Transfer ganache into flat container and cover with the plastic wrap “to contact”. Refrigerate ganache for 4-6 hours. Transfer ganache into pipping bag before assembling macarons. 

How to make Pineapple confiture

In the small saucepan over medium heat warm up pineapple puree to 30C- 40C (86F-104F). In the small bowl mix with the fork or whisk granulated sugar with Pectin NH. Add sugar mixture into pineapple puree. Mix with the whisk and let it boil. Turn off the heat and remove saucepan. Transfer confiture into pipping bag and let it cool on the countertop. Once confiture cooled to room temperature, you need to refrigerate for a few hours or overnight before assembling macarons.

How to assemble Pina Colada macarons

When you have shells, ganache and confiture ready, then you can assemble macarons. First, pair similarly sized macaron shells. Then pipe coconut cream ganache on the flat side of one macaron shell. After that, pipe pineapple confiture in the center of the ganache. Sandwich cookie with another macaron shell and press lightly, be careful not to damage shells. When you assemble all macarons, refrigerate them for 10-12 hours or overnight in airtigh container. Macarons need to mature before you can enjoy them. Please do not skip this step.

After macarons matured in the refregirator, I decorated them with tempered chocolate to look like pineapple. These macarons were big hit at my Hawaiian party.
