  1. Place the blanched almonds in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until finely ground, but do not make almond butter. Transfer the almonds to a medium bowl, and mix with egg whites, confectioners' sugar, and almond extract. Knead until the dough is smooth and uniform. If you have a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment to mix. Divide into pieces and color as desired to make fruits, or whatever you desire.

for my high school German class, we are having a Valentine's party and i am "trying" this recipe... unfortunatly, since you specified that one was not to creat an "almond butter" i was hesitant ...

This is a very good starting point but there is no way that marzipan could be made with these proportions (Maybe i have HUGE eggs). I had to add almost a whole additional bag of powdered sugar ...

good flavor but mine was too thin to mold.

Did not turn out anything like marzipan. Just a big glob of gooey mess that tasted like almonds.
