Marzipan coconut delights May 8, 2014

Yesterday was my parent’s anniversary, and besides the bought presents I wanted to make a special treat. Not having a tone of time and ingredients, I scoured my panty and happily found leftover marzipan (sweetened almond) paste from Easter. A light bulb came on – bake free easy treat!

Almonds are packed with Vitamin E ( a strong antioxidant), magnesium (good for your heart and muscles), and copper ( essential for enzyme and antioxidant function),  lower cholesterol,  are high in good fats,  protein and fiber.   Cacao and  coconut add a healthy dose of antioxidants and healthy fats to this delicacy as well.  It’s also gluten free and so easy to make. With a spoonful of cacao and some coconut flakes this makes a delightful treat, inside and out.

 

Ingredients

200 g marzipan paste or

200 g almond paste and a teaspoon and 1/2 of honey

1 tablespoon cacao

2 tablespoons coconut flakes to roll

 

Instrutions

In a bowl, mix the paste and cacao ( or the almond paste, honey and cacao) until there is a marbling. Pinch off about 1.5 cm (half inch) pieces and roll them into spheres. Cover each sphere evenly with coconut flakes. Serve or store in a cool place to firm.

Cheers and good health!
