Raspberry & Chocolate Macarons

I have been wanting to make macarons for so long, and finally two weeks ago I tried making them for the first time! I’m not going to lie, they are not the easiest thing to bake, but they are so worth the effort. I followed Edd Kimber’s macaron recipe on the BBC Good Food website. This recipe uses the Italian meringue method, and features a raspberry jam filling with a dark chocolate ganache. I experimented baking on parchment paper and on a silicone mat, and I definitely had the best results from the silicone mat. These really are delicious! The bitter chocolate and the raspberry jam pair well with the sweet shells, which are perfectly crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle. I highly recommend!
