Chocolate Coated Marzipan Sweets

Homemade sweets to give to visitors, as gifts or presents or just for you to eat because you can

Ingredients

How to make marzipan sweets

  1. Put the ground almonds and sugars together in a mixing bowl, then make a hole in the centre.  Add the lemon juice, natural almond extract and beaten eggs into the hole.  Mix it all together – I use my hands for this, massaging it all together into a smooth paste.   When it has all mixed into a ball, put it onto a lightly iced board.
  2. Roll small amounts into smooth balls; it’s probably about 1tsp for each ball, but you just need to break it off the main ball with the tips of your fingers. 
  3. Melt two 150g bars of dark Green & Black’s chocolate or Divine's dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.  Then dip the balls into the melted chocolate and using a toothpick scooped them out and left them to dry on some baking parchment.
