Ingredients

  • 500 grams Marzipan homemade or store-bought
  • 250 grams Dark chocolate
  • 30 grams Unsalted butter
  • 100 ml Whipping cream
  • 2 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

Marzipan Base

  • Knead the marzipan lightly until pliable.
  • Evenly press the marzipan into a parchment lined 8 x 8 square pan.
  • Press with the back of a spoon to make an even base.
  • Place in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Chocolate Topping

  • Add the chocolate, butter, cream into a microwave safe bowl.
  • Melt until completely dissolved in a microwave or double boiler.
  • Add vanilla and stir until smooth.
  • Pour over the Marzipan base.
  • Spread evenly all over the marzipan.
  • Cover with plastic again and let set in the fridge for at least 4 to 5 hours or overnight.

Cut Squares

  • When completely set lift the parchment paper and take the whole block out of the pan.
  • Divide and cut into squares.
  • I divide the block into 1/2 then 1/4 then each into squares to get even pieces.
  • Place on a serving platter.
  • Decorate with a slice of almond.
  • Enjoy!
