    3. Bake for 18 min. Let cool before unsticking the shells.

    Filling the macarons

    1. When cold, fill half of the shells with the raspberry and chocolate ganache using a pastry bag with a pastry tip.
    2. Optional: You can add a small piece of fresh raspberry before piping the filling.
    3. Close them with empty shells.

    Chef tip

    To be at their best, the macarons need to rest in a closed box 24h in the fridge before eating them.
