Marzipan Potatoes

No Photo


  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 large egg white
  • Fine Dutch cocoa (such as Droste Cocoa)


  1. Mix almonds, confectioners' sugar, rose water and egg in a blender or food processor until very smooth.
  2. Wrap in a damp towel and allow to rest overnight.
  3. Take marzipan and roll into small 1 inch balls. Place cocoa, about 1/2 cup, into a small bag and toss a marzipan ball into bag. Close bag and gently roll around with your hands until the ball is covered in a light dusting of cocoa. The cocoa will cause the balls to look remarkably like baby potatoes!


This recipe can be used to make a variety of shapes.

Instead of rolling in cocoa, add paste food coloring to marzipan and shape into fruits, stars or any other shape.
