Something came over me the other evening, the desire to make delicious things to eat. Before Christmas I had bought a block of marzipan to make some marzipan fruits for Christmas, but I ran out of time. Instead I made some pretty marzipan hearts and dipped them in white chocolate for a naughty treat.
They were really simple to make as you can probably see from the photographs above. First I added a little red food colouring to half a block of marzipan and mixed it well, I rolled it out quite thin and cut out my shapes with a small fluted heart-shaped cutter.
I melted half a bar of white chocolate and dipped the marzipan hearts in it, leaving them to dry on a sheet on baking parchment.
A perfect little Valentine treat for your loved ones!
