- Break the almond paste into small pieces over a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar, and work it in with your hands until incorporated. It will be crumbly. Add another 3/4 cup of sugar, and work it in really well. Pour in the corn syrup, and work it in until evenly blended. Spread remaining sugar out on a clean work surface, and knead the dough until smooth and uniform, 3 to 5 minutes. If the dough seems too sticky, knead in more sugar. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about an hour. It should have the consistency of modeling dough.
- Break off small pieces of marzipan to color, kneading in color thoroughly until you arrive at the desired color. Then blend the colored pieces into larger portions of dough. Dust a work surface and rolling pin with confectioners' sugar, and roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using small cookie cutters to make candies.

I love chocolate covered marzipan but its sooo expensive to buy in the stores, so I am so excited to find this recipe and that it turned out so well, and this recipe is far better than the marz...
My mom loved this candy, I dipped mine in a dark chocolate it came out good. She asks for it all of the time.
I will never buy premade marzipan again. This tastes so much better and you get so much more product.
Fantastic! made it for a friend of mine and her husband and he really loves marzipan... and this was the first time I ever made it. I added a little bit of coco powder to the last step to give i...
My mother spent a few years in Germany in her youth, apparently doing nothing but tasting delicious deserts. Anyways, she's a self-described "marzipan snob" and usually refuses to eat it. After ...
