Making Marzipan Candy

Making marzipan has been on my list of things I’ve wanted to make for years and years. Why it took me so long to make it, I’ll never know.

Making homemade marzipan takes only a handful of ingredients. One of them being almond flour/meal. These days, almond flour is super simple to find in almost every grocery store’s baking aisle.

A popular brand name that most people are familiar with is Bob’s Red Mill brand. However, making almond flour/meal is equally easy to make at home by placing whole, skinless, blanched almonds in a food processor, and processing until a soft, coarse flour is achieved. For this post and recipe, I used a store-bought almond flour that I already had in my pantry.
