Marzipan filled chocolates

September 30th, 2011 Comments Off on Marzipan filled chocolates

There is nothing beautiful than a perfectly coated marzipan with chocolate.

  • 200 gr bitter chocolate (bitter couverture 70%)
    • 80 gr blanched almonds  
    • 70 gr caster sugar 
    • 1/2 t almond extract 
  • or instead of the above three ingredients -100 gr ready made marzipan
  • ready to use writing icing sugar tubes

to prepare the marzipan:

Grind the almonds in a food processor until you get a fine powder. Add caster sugar and almond extract and keep processing it for 5 minutes till well combined.

Put the mixture onto a surface and knead well until you get a dough. Wrap with a cling wrap film and refrigerate for 4 hours.

to prepare the chocolate:

Melt the bitter chocolate with bain-marie method. If you don?t have a bain-marie chocolate machine, simply put water in a thick bottom pan.

Inside this pan place another pan with the couverture chocolate.  Chocolate needs to be melted at a very low temperature.

Fill the half of the chocolate moulds with melted chocolate and put a bite of marzipan. Cover with the rest of  melted chocolate.  Rest to chill for several hours.

Decorate with coloured writing icing tubes.

Store in an airtight container.
