Today, I want to show you how easy it is to make some homemade snacks, starting with my quick & easy almond marzipan horns. They’re delicious for tea-time or with some coffee, in the morning or the afternoon. Basically, they’re perfect for any time of the day.
I recommend using only “real” marzipan, as some can be way too sugary. Per guidelines, it shouldn’t include more than 35% of sugar. I normally use this one, from Rapunzel, and I am very happy with it. I also use the chocolate coating from Rapunzel. The company follows some of the toughest organic certificates, so I prefer to spend a little bit more money, for better quality. And yes, you might have guessed it already, I use the coconut palm sugar from Rapunzel as well. You can find it here.
Quick & easy almond marzipan horns
- 200 g raw marzipan paste
- 100 g ground almons (without skin)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 100 g coconut sugar alternatively icing sugar
- 1 tbsp water
- 50 g almond flakes
- 100 g dark chocolate coating
- First, pre-heat the oven on 200 degrees. Then, add marzipan, ground almonds, lemon juice, egg yolk and cinnamon to a bowl. Add sugar and mix until well combined.
- Next make a role out of the mass, 2 cm thick and divide into 20 pieces. Form little horns out of the 20 pieces and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
- Mix the eggwhite with the water and break down the almond flakes a little bit and add them to a small bowl. Dip the almond horns in the eggwhite mixture and then in the almonds and place back on the baking tray.
- Bake almond horns for 10 minutes, take them out and place on a cooling rack.
- Once cooled completely, melt the chocolate on medium heat. Once melted, dip the chocolate horns into the chocolate and place back on the baking tray. Let them cool completely.
