Amarula Macarons

Hello friends, today we are making these amazing Amarula Macarons! They are filled with Amarula Blonde Chocolate Ganache.

Blonde chocolate is the same as caramelized white chocolate and it’s just the best!

The shells of the macarons are flavored with espresso, because the coffee taste works so nicely with the Amarula and the Blonde Chocolate.

Amarula is originally from South Africa, and it’s a liqueur made with sugar, cream and the fruit of the African marula tree which is also locally called the Elephant tree or the Marriage Tree.

It tastes a bit like butterscotch, but better! It hits high notes of toasted caramel, a creamy and smooth texture, and a bit of a citrusy finish.
