Marzipan Chocolate Recipe – Eggless Marzipan Recipe with step wise pictures.
Delicious marzipan chocolate which is eggless. This is a healthy sweet treat for your kids. You can put them in their lunch box as well.
I have heard about marzipan but have never tasted it before. It is nothing but sweet almond dough which is formed from powdered almonds and sugar. There are so many versions out there of making marzipan. Traditionally sugar is cooked to certain stage and then mixed with almonds to form a play dough like consistency.
Marzipan is mainly used in making chocolate covered marzipans, covering cakes, shaped into fruits like which is then had as a treat. It is even stuffed inside stollen dough and baked.
I wanted to make a simple marzipan which can be had as a small treat. I created this eggless version because i am not comfortable eating raw eggs and also i know maha will enjoy this, so i dont want to risk giving her raw eggs. This eggless version was perfect and it gave a delicious marzipan.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
