Homemade treats from the kitchen are always a great gift, because you just have to spend Christmas time not thinking about the figure, but really can feast! At Christmas, I always have something sweet at home to make someone happy, because at the last minute I always come up with 1000 people to whom I would like to give a little something!
Marzipan Almond Taler
you need (for about 50 pieces):
- 100 g marzipan raw material

Crumble the marzipan mixture into a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients until the whole almonds into a dough. Add two teaspoons of small teaspoons to a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Put one almond on top. Bake in the oven at 150 degrees (circulating air) for about 12 minutes.

Crumble the dark chocolate and melt in a water bath together with the coconut oil. Add maple syrup, spices and nuts and mix well. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and smooth. Melt the white chocolate and place it over the chocolate mixture with a spoon.
I’ll pack some more packages for a few dear people who are not living near me and send them along with the Christmas mail tomorrow. But now I have to sit down and make Christmas cards so they arrive in time!
Have a nice day! Greetings Katharina
