Macaroons with Liquorice Ganache

Yesterday I was going to two birthdays, and decided to make these delicious macaroons as part of the gift. They were quick and easy to make, as I had made a large portion of the macaroons a while ago, which I had stored in an airtight container, so all I needed to make was the ganache.

The advantage of making a large portion of macaroons at a time, is that you can serve delicious homemade petit fours for unexpected guests, or you can make them as a hostess gift when you are invited out.

The downside, is definitely that you will have to remind yourself not to eat all them yourself 🙂 I Truly love macaroons with all kinds of filling, like, white chocolate, passion fruit, orange, raspberry, coffee, and so on, so I sometimes have to store them at my parents house to prevent an overload of sugar in my veins 😉

If you have a good idea for a filling which you would like me to try/test, please leave a comment and I will take into consideration 🙂


Ingredients (10 macaroons)

20 macaroon bottoms

1/3 cup good quality white chocolate (I use Amedei Toscano White)

1/5 cup cream

1 tsp. liquorice powder

1/2 tsp. raw liquorice powder


Chop the chocolate roughly, and melt with cream in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

When melted, add liquorice powder and half of the raw liquorice and whisk until combined. Let rest for 10 – 20 minutes, or until the ganache has thickened.

Fill the ganache in a pastry bag. Fill half of the macaroons with ganache and top with the other half of the macaroons.

Sprinkle the rest of the raw liquorice on top of the finished macaroon, and fridge for at least half an hour before serving.


Bon Appétit!
