    I love marzipan, but had never tried to make the chocolate dipped one at home — it’s something I should definitely try.

    Hi, I made 30 chocolate coated marzipan chocolates for my husband as an extra Christmas present. They turned out fabulous and, I used 69% dark chocolate with orange bits which gave them added flavour. I am unable to attach a photo, but the recipe was so simple. I will defiantly use it again and try some different flavours to add to the marzipan, as it’s not just for Christmas
