White Chocolate Ganache Macaron Filling

Learn how to make white chocolate ganache for macarons with only five simple ingredients. This ganache adds a rich and luxurious touch to macarons and is the perfect blank canvas if you want to layer in additional flavors of jam or compote.

Here's what you'll need...

You'll Need:

– 2 1/2 cups white chocolate morsels – 6 tablespoons unsalted butter softened to room temperature and cut into 1 tablespoon (14 grams) pieces – 3/4 cup heavy cream – 1 tablespoon vanilla extract – 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


Place white chocolate morsels and butter in a medium-sized heat-safe bowl.


Heat heavy cream in the microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 1 - 2 minutes, until the heavy cream begins to steam and bubble but doesn’t boil over. Immediately, pour the heavy cream over the chocolate. Make sure all of the chocolate is submerged under the cream. Allow the mixture to sit, without stirring, for 3 minutes.


Add vanilla extract and fine sea salt to the chocolate, and whisk until the mixture is smooth and fully blended.


Transfer ganache to a shallow container, and press plastic wrap against the surface of the ganache (to prevent a skin from forming on top).


Place the ganache in the fridge, and allow the mixture to cool until it’s firm enough to pipe, about 1 - 2 hours.
