Meet my all time favorite sweet. I have always loved marzipan, even when I was very young. I know a lot of people think of it as an "old people's treat" here in the states, but I strongly disagree.
When I was younger, my dad spent some time working in Austria, I used to see little animal-shaped, or fruit-shaped marzipan treats everywhere, and I wanted them all!
I truly believe that chocolate covered marzipan make for the perfect candy, nobody can convince me otherwise :)
Bottom line - marzipan is awesome! Try it if you haven't, try again if you have :) It is worth it...
Almonds are delicious, they are high in healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, protein and various important nutrients.
Almonds are among the world’s best sources of vitamin E, and are extremely high in magnesium.
Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
This recipe always reminds me of the first time I made it, the song that automatically reminds me of is is the one that was playing the Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri

* Usually marzipan color is white. My marzipan is brownish, that's because I used raw natural almonds (not blanched), but the recipe is exactly the same if you choose to use blanched almonds.
Have you already tried it?
Go ahead, share your version with me, take a picture and tag @pwildflour
