"Marzipan can be a great cover for a cake, or cut out fun shapes to decorate cakes, cookies, or eat alone. You will need a little frosting to glue the marzipan to a cookie or cake and it can make for a yummy treat. It is especially yummy on a cake with cream and a little bit of your choice of jam between the layers!"

I've tried other marzipan recipes, but I like this one the best. It was a big hit at our Nutcracker production this year.
I made this for my dad, who said it was some of the best marzipan he has ever had.
I was a bit nervous about how simple the recipe was, that it had to be missing something important, but it was really easy to make and got rave reviews from my family.
This was very good. I thought it captured the almond flavor of the candy well. One note - I found that if I waited a day or two to eat the candy, it had set up better and was tastier than when I first made it.
I love chocolate covered marzipan but its sooo expensive to buy in the stores, so I am so excited to find this recipe and that it turned out so well, and this recipe is far better than the marzipan I have purchased. I am also happy that it is eggless, since my kids love to eat it as well. The only thing I changed, is that I added a teaspoon of almond extract for some extra almond-ey flavor! Thanks for a great recipe!!
My mom loved this candy, I dipped mine in a dark chocolate it came out good. She asks for it all of the time.
I will never buy premade marzipan again. This tastes so much better and you get so much more product.
Fantastic! made it for a friend of mine and her husband and he really loves marzipan... and this was the first time I ever made it. I added a little bit of coco powder to the last step to give it more of a brown color. I made little roses out of it and decorated the top of the cake for it. the was a sour cream chocolate cake with raspberry filling... it was a great recipe he loved it!!
Wonderful! I just made it for cake decorations for a birthday cake for my Dad and it turned out beautifully. I molded small marzipan oranges and they look soo cute. Plus, it tastes awesome. I never like marzipan when I was a kid but this recipe is delicious. I used a pastry blender to break up the almond paste and combine it with the sugar.
