Once you realize how simple, fresh & tasty it is to make marzipan from scratch, you’ll never go back to pre-made.
On a clean work surface, gently knead the marzipan to soften it, using a sprinkling of icing sugar as needed on the surface to keep the marzipan from sticking. Roll out the marzipan to about ¼ -inch (6 mm) thick and use a small cookie cutter (1 1/2–inches/40 mm is a nice portion) to cut out shapes. Place these on a parchment-lined baking tray.
Melt the chocolate in a metal bowl placed over a pot filled with an inch of barely simmering water, stirring gently until smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat and dip each marzipan piece into the chocolate half way and shake off excess chocolate before placing on the tray to set. Let the chocolate set (or chill for just 10 minutes) and then store in an airtight container.
The dipped marzipan will keep for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
Place the ground almonds into a food processor. Stir the sugar, honey and water in a small saucepot over high heat until it reaches a full boil and the sugar has completely dissolved. Pour this into the food processor while it’s running. Add the almond extract and blend until the marzipan comes together. While it’s still warm, shape this into a log and wrap in plastic wrap well. Leave at room temperature to cool and store well-wrapped until you are ready to use it.
Marzipan will keep, well-wrapped, for up to a month, or can be frozen up to 3 months.
