If you need a last-minute gift idea this is the right choice. Delight chocolate-lovers will be charmed with these homemade marzipan and chocolate truffles that are so easy to make. Also, you can decorate them with chopped pistachios, coconut, or edible glitter for a wonderfully look.
So grab the recipe for homemade marzipan/almond paste and let’s make some super easy Chocolate Marzipan Truffles.
- 250g marzipan
- 100g dark chocolate
- desiccated coconut
- chopped pistachios
- cocoa powder or gold edible glitter, to decorate
Cut the marzipan into 12 equal pieces, then roll into balls. Transfer to a wire rack and place a sheet of baking paper underneath.
Once you’re done making the marzipan balls it’s time to melt the chocolate. Chop the dark or milk chocolate into small pieces and place them in a microwave-safe bowl (you can also melt the chocolate over very low heat on the stovetop). Microwave the chocolate in 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until the chocolate is melted and smooth.If you like a slightly glossier chocolate coating, stir in the butter or coconut oil at this point.
Dip the marzipan balls into the melted chocolate, letting the excess drip off, and then place them on wax paper. You can decorate them as you wish. Once all the marzipan balls are coated you can transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator where the chocolate will harden more quickly. It is so easy and simple!
