Stuffed marzipan truffles - take a small tablespoon size piece of marzipan and lightly knead it. Shape it into a flat disc and place a chocolate-coated nut in the center. Bring the sides up to close over. Roll into a smooth ball. Tip - the size of the chocolate-coated nut will determine the amount of marzipan you need as well as the size of the finished truffles. I highly recommend a small size to keep them aesthetic. Set aside.
Combine the powdered sugar and cocoa powder well. Roll the marzipan balls in the cocoa mixture.
If you making homemade chocolate marzipan, ensure that the nuts are ground to a fine meal.
Coarsely ground nuts will give you very textured balls. Still delicious and sometimes even preferable but the smoother balls coat better in chocolate.
Always melt chocolate at low heat and in a short burst to prevent the chocolate.
And, make sure no water or condensation gets into the chocolate. Any one of these will situations can make the chocolate grainy or seize.
