  • 1 black chocolate with high level of cacao

1.) Knead marzipan with 1-2 tbsp almond mush. This is for more almond flavor and less sweetness. Depending by adding more or less almonds. If you like you can also add rum flavoring , orange juice or brandy, as long as the ground does not become too much liquid.

2.) Pluck pieces from this mass and flatten them, embedding an almond in the middle and form into an oval.
