Marzipan hearts dipped in white chocolate

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.

easy marzipan hearts 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.

    You know this would be the perfect gift for me!
    I never even thought about the fact you can colour marzipan either! Would that work with the almond or just the white?
    Thank you for sharing.

    They do look fab!
    Any chance you remember where did you buy a cutter from?
    All my cookie cutters will be way too big to recreate it 🙁

    These look so cute, but I have to be honest… I HATE marzipan with such a passion! When I was around 7 I won a block of it on a school tombola and ate the whole thing in one go. Was sooooo ill!

    These look absolutely brilliant and so perfect looking too. Marzipan is delicious too. Not sure our attempt would be quite as good as yours!
