Orange Marzipan Almond Truffles

Orange Marzipan Almond Truffles

This recipe is gluten-free.

This simple recipe will make a confectioner out of any home cook. Gently knead our Love’n Bake® Marzipan with orange rind, which gives the paste a hint of citrus flavor. Divide it into small morsels, roll them into balls then dip them in melted chocolate and chopped almonds. You can add a teaspoon or two of your favorite flavoring: vanilla, rose water or orange liqueur would be delicious. Use lemon or lime zest to change the flavor profile slightly. These keep well and are lovely as homemade gifts.

Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water.
  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper.
  3. Place the chopped toasted almonds on a dinner plate. Set aside.
  4. While the chocolate is melting, knead the orange rind and liqueur or vanilla into the marzipan by hand or in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a metal paddle. Shape the Love’n Bake® Marzipan into small uniform balls using a teaspoon or small scoop and place them on the paper-lined baking sheet.
  5. One at a time, dip the marzipan balls into the melted chocolate then roll the coated marzipan in the chopped almonds.
  6. Place the truffles on the paper-lined baking sheet and allow the chocolate to harden.

Yield: Approximately 32 truffles

Truffles can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Substitute lemon or lime rind for the orange rind. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons flavoring such as vanilla extract, raspberry or orange liqueur or rosewater to the marzipan in place of the citrus rind.
