Marzipan cherries







Cook Time

65-70 Min


  • 12 glacĂ© cherries
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 250g/9oz marzipan
  • 100g/4oz dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Cut the cherries in half, and put in a small bowl. Add the brandy and stir well to coat. Leave for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Divide the marzipan into 24 pieces, and roll each piece into a ball. Press half a cherry into the top of each marzipan ball.
  • Break the chocolate into pieces, place in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Stir until all the chocolate has melted.
  • Dip each sweet into the melted chocolate using a cocktail stick, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Put the chocolate-coated marzipan cherries on the baking tray, and chill in the refrigerator until set.
