Marzipan Potatoes

Hi guys!

You already know I can’t wait until Christmas is here but there is one thing I absolutely LOVE about this time of the year and St. Nicholas: marzipan! I’m addicted to it and I swear, I could eat a whole package at once!

Sooooo I went looking for a recipe… I wish I hadn’t because it’s way too easy! I thought if it would be very hard to make, I’d certainly never make it again but it’s just sooooo easy! You can barely call it a recipe 😉

It was the lovely Annelies from Een Lepeltje Lekkers who made this last year and it’s so good I didn’t adapt it at all. So thank you Annelies for these yummy Marzipan Potatoes!


What we need:

  • 150 g powder sugar
  • 150 g almond powder
  • 2 tablespoons of crystal sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 egg white


How to:

  1. Mix together the almond powder and the powder sugar.
  2. Add the egg white.
  3. Mix together with a spoon until the mixture begins to stick together.
  4. Blend with your hand(s) until it becomes a ball.
  5. Knead until perfect marzipan starts to form.
  6. Cut the ball in smaller pieces and roll them into little balls.
  7. Put together sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl.
  8. Put the little marzipan balls in the bowl and start rolling them around. Do this one little ball at a time.
  9. Place the Marzipan Potatoes on a plate so your kids, guests, family, … can attack!

Have a delicious day ❤
