For my Jane Austen birthday party tonight I mixed up a batch and coated it in chocolate. Here's how:
Combine in a bowl:
1 cup ground almonds
1 cup(or a little over) icing sugar (confectioner's sugar?)
Then add gradually, checking how much liquid you need:
2 egg whites
about 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.
Stir until they form a dough. Refrigerate for 30mins and then use as desired.
I desired to make Chocolate Coated Marzipan so this is what I did next, with Laura's help:
Shape teaspoons of marzipan into balls.
Melt some dark or cooking chocolate in a small pyrex jug in the microwave.
Dip the balls in the chocolate (using small tongs) and stand to dry on waxed paper.
Decorate with a flaked almond or other decoration.
