How to make marzipan Christmas bites

marzipan Christmas bites

I hope that you dont find the last of my four Christmas tutorials too late. But last night was hectic as we here in Denmark celebrate Christmas on the 24th with wonderful food,  yummy treats and the excitement from the kids when they get their presents. We always make marzipan treats at Christmas and these are the ones I like the best. Marzipan Christmas bites coated in chocolate and decorated with Christmas sprinkles.

This is what I use:
Coating chocolate (heat it in a dobble boiler)
Small paper cups
Sprinkles or royal icing
Chocolate dipping spoon

Step 1:
Roll the mazipan into bite size balls. When the chocolate is melted carefully “dump” the ball into the chocolate and use the dipping spoon to pick it up. Shake off the excess chocolate.

Step 2:
Place the chocolate covered marzipan ball in the paper cup and set aside. When the chocolate is nearly dry add your decoration on the top. Set aside to dry completely.
Note: if you use royal icing then wait until the chocolate is all dry before you pipe your decor.

Store the marzipan treats in a air thight box. Enjoy!

Happy Caking! & Merry Christmas

    This looks yummy! I made some marzipan mixed with pistachio paste and that was really good and goes well with dark chocolate. Louise, would it be possible to teach us about how to temper chocolate? I’d be ever grateful! many thanks Deepika

    I live in Boston, MA – the only marzipan I have ever tried had a dried, tasteless mouth feel. This summer my sister and I took a tour of the North End (Little Italy) in Boston -just for fun- and we tried fresh marzipan…I ADORE it! I am excited to re-create your little treats for lots of events. Thanks!
