Marzipan Potatoes




  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.
