Pink Macarons with a Ginger and Chocolate

Pink October a month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and Deeba and Jamie have choosed for the Mactweets Pink.
I have to say mine don't look pink , I used the pink color but i think i used a little bit too much.
As you know I have written in my earlier post that my hubby is never that thrilled to see me making Macarons.
But I think his opinion is changing, as I sneakly try to use exciting fillings in them.
So have to say these ones he really enjoyed.

As always I use my favourite Macaron recipe.
And for the filling I used a dark chocolate gnache and I mixed into the gnache crystalized ginger. And we all loved it.

Husbands are so funny and we have laughed together before about neither of our husbands liking macs! Your macs are really great and this is a wonderful flavor combo. Glad he liked them. And thanks so much for baking for Pink October, Finla dear!
