To answer the question of what marzipan candy is, we can say that it is a fragrant almond paste, used for cooking cakes, candies and thin cookies. This dish originated in Medieval Europe. No one knows who exactly invented this recipe. The most popular version is that this dish was invented in the East of Europe.

 There are several ways to make marzipan. Chefs add spices, juices, orange or rose water and other ingredients while cooking this sweet dessert. The main thing is what marzipan is made of. Yep, we’re talking about almonds. The nuts should be high quality and crunchy. Never replace it with almond flour. In this case, the marzipan will be too dry.

 It is also important to use powdered sugar. This way there will be no lumps and the mass will be very smooth. If you want to make this dessert healthier and more natural, use honey instead of sugar.
