Rose Water, Hibiscus, & Dark Cocoa Macarons with Rose Water and Hibiscus White Chocolate Ganaches

by Laura on February 7, 2011

My Sweet Boy’s lovely girlfriend Taylor is over to bake today, and we are taking on macarons.  We’ve had to hearten ourselves along through a string of failures—macarons are notoriously temperamental—but we are having fun, and spending six hours together on them has been an unexpected and happy surprise.  We’re on batch four now this afternoon, with fingers crossed.  They may not be camera perfect, but they are tasty, and I think that’s what matters most.  I think after a few more batches, we’ll be macaron pros.  I’m including recipes for three of the variations we made, plus all of the little tricks that helped us transition from total failure to pretty-as-a-picture.  If you have to pick just one to make, my favorite are the dark cocoa with hibiscus white chocolate ganache.

I got to try the hibiscus flavor. I’ve never tasted anything like it. It was delicious!
