Norwegians love to have nibbles and sweet treats ready and available for when both planned and unexpected guests arrive in the month of December. It is traditional to make your own marzipan and in our home we do that every year in the last week leading up to Christmas. We make marzipan fruits from scratch beginning with blanching our own almonds. But a quicker and cheats way of having marzipan ready for guests works just as well and I show you here how:
Unfortunately one of my children ate the punnet of raspberries I had bought to have alongside these marzipan treats. The red dotted amongst the darkness of the chocolate looks simply elegant and the slight tartness and juiciness of the berries with the sweetness of the treats works exceptionally well,
I dare you, give it a go.
