Ingredients 150 g Ground Almonds
150 g Caster Sugar
150 g Icing Sugar
1 Egg - beaten
1 teaspoon lemon juice
150 g - 200g Dark or Milk Chocolate, or a mixture of the two.
Put the Ground Almonds, icing Sugar and Caster Sugar into a bowl and make a well in the middle.
Place the beaten egg and lemon juice into a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.
Mix everything together and use your hands to squeeze the mixture into a dough style mixture.
Roll out onto a board
Cut into a grid of five horizontal lines and 5 vertical lines, making 40 pieces of marzipan.
Roll each piece into a ball. you should have about 40 marzipan sweets.
Place the sweets in the fridge to firm up whilst you melt the chocolate.
Either: Melt the chocolate: either in a double saucepan or bowl over a pan of boiling water, over a hob.
Or: Carefully melt the chocolate in the microwave. If using a microwave, make sure that you use a glass bowl. If you use a plastic bowl it will, as (I once found out to my cost), melt.
Place the marzipan sweets into the chocolate and carefully coat them with the chocolate.
Place the chocolate covered sweets onto greaseproof paper on a flat tray.
Refrigerate until firm. If preferred, dust with icing sugar. Store in a tin.
