December 6th



1 lb. blanched and peeled almonds

1 lb. powdered sugar

2 egg whites

1 tablespoon Vanilla extract

Brandy oder Rum

unsweetened cocoa powder


chocolate streussel



Place the almonds into a food processor and process them until they are finely ground.

Add vanilla extract and the powdered sugar to the almonds. Knead in  the egg whites a small amount at a time until the ingredients are mixed  and the dough is smooth and pliable.

Divide the dough in two parts. Add the brandy or rum (I used 1 tablespoon) until you get the desired taste in one of the dough, leave the other without alcohol. Roll the rum flavored marzipan balls in cocoa powder and the plain ones in sugar or chocolate streussel.
