Dates Stuffed with Homemade Marzipan

 

1. Slice (fresh or dried) dates lengthwise and remove the pits.

 

2. Fill each date with a ball of Marzipan and press between both sides of the date.

 

Serving Suggestions:
* Use dried apricot, which lends a bit of sourness to the Marzipan.
* You can also stuff fresh fruit, such as strawberries. However, these must be served immediately, as the sugar draws out the fruit juices.
* Dip the Marzipan balls in hot chocolate and let cool.

Ingredients:
100 gr. Bittersweet Chocolate, break up the cubes, or chop.
¼ cup Sugar
