Rose Raspberry Macarons made with rose white chocolate ganache and raspberry confit in the center. Macaron shells are made in the form of eclair and decorated with ganache, fresh raspberries, and dried rose petals. These macarons were inspired by chef Elena Adell and her macarons course that I took a few days ago.

How to make this recipe

  • Make Rose White Chocolate ganache.
  • Prepare Raspberry Confit.
  • Bake macaron shells. I used my Basic French Meringue Macaron shells recipe. I also have an online video lesson on how to make macaron shells using the NO REST method.
  • Assemble and decorate macarons.

I made a template for how to pipe these “eclair-looking” macarons. You can print the template and place it under the baking mat before pipping macaron shells. Check also Apple, Carrot, or Egg Shaped macarons.

How to make Raspberry Confit

In the small saucepan warm up raspberry puree. In a small cup or bowl mix granulated white sugar and Pectin NH. Add this mixture to raspberry puree and mix with the whisk. Wait until the mixture boiled and add a pinch of citric acid. Mix with the whisk and transfer into a piping bag. Keep raspberry confit on the countertop or refrigerate until use.

In the small saucepan add heavy whipped cream and glucose syrup. Warm up mixture over medium heat. Do not boil! Meanwhile, place white chocolate in a plastic cup or bowl and melt it in the microwave or use the double boiler method. Pour warm heavy cream mixture over melted chocolate in 3 additions. Mix with the spatula all the time. Move the spatula fast and press down. Add rose water or rose extract. Do not add too much! You do not want your ganache to taste like soap. Emulsify with an immersion blender. Transfer the ganache into a flat container and cover it with the plastic wrap “to contact”. Refrigerate the ganache or keep it on the countertop until pipping consistency. Check the ganache by pressing down with your fingers. The ganache should be soft to the touch and the plastic warp should come off easily.

How to assemble Macarons

When you have macaron shells, raspberry confit, and ganache ready, you can assemble macarons. Transfer rose white chocolate ganache into a piping bag with a round piping tip Wilton 1A. I also used a Wilton 4B piping tip for another piping bag. Pipe ganache on the flat side of macaron shells then pipe raspberry confit in the center of the ganache. Sandwich the macaron with another macaron shell and lightly press, making sure there is no ganache coming out from the macaron. Pipe more ganache on top of the macaron shell and decorate with fresh raspberries, dried rose petals, and mini macarons.
