Marzipan Marbles Recipe
Makes 40 pieces
- 2 1/2 rolls (7 ounces each) almond paste, broken into pieces
- 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 40 pecan halves
Place the almond paste and powdered sugar in an electric mixer with a paddle and beat until combined. Add the corn syrup and continue to beat until well combined. (If your mixer can’t hold that much, work with half of each ingredient at a time.) Turn out onto a clean work surface and knead the marzipan until a smooth dough forms. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a tablespoon to scoop out portions of the marzipan. Roll into balls and pop onto the baking sheet. Firmly press a pecan into the corner of each ball. Set aside for 4 hours, or until firm.
