marzipan balls

If, like me you are already making marzipan to go on your Christmas Cake, then why not make a bit more and make marzipan sweets too?

These are a great addition to have at your Christmas table, are easy and fun to make, and taste delicious.

They also make great little gifts to take out with you on your Christmas travels.

"Oh you know. Just a little something I threw together this morning. It took minutes." It looks very impressive and of course, in truth, it does just take minutes.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes (To melt the chocolate only).
Makes: 40 sweets

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.

Step 1.
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.

Step 8
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.
Step 9
Place the marzipan sweets into the chocolate and carefully coat them with the chocolate.

Cover the Sweets in Chocolate

Step 10
Place the chocolate covered sweets onto greaseproof paper on a flat tray.
Step 11
Refrigerate until firm. If preferred, dust with icing sugar. Store in a tin.

Hi Sally - thought I should let you know that I can see the email thread with Jon when I clicked on your article
Hi Jon
Please could you possibly change the thumbnail on this one to the sweets rather than the marzipan? Thank you.

Thank you Jon. Eventually I want to link it to my article that I am currently writing for WN. It's a three part linked article. So only parts one and two are written so far! Thanks. Sally :)
Hi Sally - for the moment links don't work. What would you like to link to?

With the categories, you put them at the end after the # - one per line as in the default format. Replace the "Change Me" with your category.

Does that make sense?

How do we do categories please? And how do we add links?
