Homemade Marzipan (DIY)

If there’s one thing I love about Christmas, it gotta be homemade marzipan. I gotta tell you two things before, you’ll dig into this recipe, it’s outrageously addictive and it’s much easier than you could ever imagine. No need to buy marzipan at the grocery store anymore. It’s much more fun and it brings a lot more flavor when you do it yourself.

No refined sugar

  • If you’ll buy marzipan at the local grocery store it’s loaded with refined sugar, glucose syrup preservatives. I developed this recipe only using two ingredients, almonds and medjool dates // 100% natural and nutrient rich.
