Tonight I made homemade Marzipan covered with Semisweet Chocolate!
(When you don't blanch the almonds, this is what it looks like! But blanching the almonds first will give you the traditional white colored marzipan.)
I can't wait to experiment with this more! I remember making this years ago, but now I have so many fun ideas to try with it- like adding natural colors, or shaping it into leaves or other little designs for topping cakes!
