Marzipan Balls Dipped in Dark Chocolate

This is not really a recipe at all. But, Marzipan and dark chocolate……..I haven’t specified quantities because you can make as much or as little as you like really.

Ingredients

1 quantity Marzipan (make sure it is egg free)
1 bar Dark Chocolate for cooking

1 packet of Cocktail sticks

How To Make

Break off small amounts of the marzipan, and roll into balls, roughly the size of a cherry.

Marzipan Balls

Lay the balls out on a sheet of grease proof paper, and push a cocktail stick into the centre of each ball.

Find a saucepan and pyrex bowl which fits into the top. Fill the saucepan with about 2 inches of water, and place the bowl into the pan, so that the water level rises slightly around the bowls base. Turn on the heat and keep it on low.

Break off chunks of dark chocolate into the bowl, stir occasionally, and wait till all the chocolate has melted.

Melting Chocolate in a Bowl

Now for the fun part! pick up a marzipan ball by its cocktail stick and swirl it around in the chocolate so it is totally covered – you may need to use a spoon to help with this. Once done, place back onto the grease proof paper and repeat till all your marzipan balls are covered in lovely chocolate.

Now repeat again, dipping each ball into the chocolate to give it an extra thick layer of chocolate.

Finally, place all the balls onto a plate and refrigerate for around 15 minutes, till the chocolate coating is hard.

Lovely Deliciousness!!
