    I don’t think I’ve ever had marzipan. It sounds and looks really good!

  2. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    hehe number 2 had me giggling 😉

    Although you can keep the marzipan for yourself 🙂

  3. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Oh yum, homemade marzipan.

    I could add some orange oil :D.

  4. Angela (the diet book junkie)

    i haven’t seen the Black Swan, but The King’s Speech is something you definitely need to add to your list. like now. 🙂

    p.s. i’ve never had marzipan but with chocolate i generally don’t discriminate.

    …and no worries at all; our coffee date (de-caffeinated though it was :P) was a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon 🙂

    I wanna see Black Swan sooooooooo baddddddd!!! And these look AMAZING!!!! I need to have some more marzipan in my life, stat.

  7. Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen)

    I love marzipan! Seriously decadent and delicious! These look perfect!

  8. Tash

    I LOVE marzipan!! Oh my mouth is watering thinking just about it. I made some very similar raw marzipan for xmas and it didn’t last long 🙂

    As for Black Swan, some part of me wishes I had not gone to see it. It was FULL ON, very weird and still disturbs me if I think about it for too long. Psychological horror it is. x

  9. fatbooo

    Damn you, now I have to pop into my IGA to grab some snack choccies. Cravings!

  10. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Haha, I love number 2 on your list. I always wonder what would happen if I said something like that to someone!

  11. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha t the risk of sounding like soo sooo old, I think that’s the look that a lot of girls are going for. I know because I probably did then too lol. And I really enjoyed Black Swan-gotta love a crazy ballerina!

  12. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    Hubba hubba~they look sooooo luxurious and pretty too! I’ mnot sure if I’ve tried marzipan before~but I sure will try this VERY soon. Promise. <3

    First of all…., the marzipan balls look awesome & even though I kinda don’t really like marzipan I’d probably have a crack (or 2) at these, they look great.
    Regarding No.2 – I event managed this amazing art showing for this oouubber talented young artist even though her paintings were freaky & weird (but no denying her talent) & she was strictly a jeans & Teeshirt girl……, except for her grand opening…. it was your No. 2 girl. Everyone was embarrassed & she spent the entire evening thinking she was so hot, it was so sad especially because all the snobby art dealers (who surely are used to random artists) freaked out. Go figure. I totally get your sentiments with this one.

    I have to admit… I have never had Marzipan… All I can remember is reading about barley Marzipan doorknobs in Enid Blytons…

  15. Margaret

    Another amazing recipe! It just so happens I have two bags of almond meal in the cupboard right now.
    Don’t worry about the Supre girl. She would just swear at you. She thinks she looks great and would think you are jealous. That’s her self protective mechanism.

    You will have a puppy one day; when you have a nice yard with soft grass. 🙂

    Hi Hannah,

    I am so happy to see that you loved my recipe for Marzipan! It is one of my favorites sweet tooth snacks! And I agree with you, the bitterness of the cacao balances the sweetness of the agave 🙂

    I would just like to ask you that since you posted my entire recipe, that you would please mention that the recipe is from “the Bee’s Knees Kitchen” in the links above. Where you mention, “original recipe” and “here.” I would really appreciate it since I made several batches to get the recipe correct and would love to get more PR for my blog 🙂

  17. Tori @ eat-tori

    Oh my- they look tremendous. Just the thing to help you recover from Black Swan (I spent half hiding under my jumper).

  18. megan @ whatmegansmaking

    This sounds like nothing I’ve ever tried before! I don’t know how I feel about marzipan…I might have to try these to find out 🙂

  19. Alisa Fleming

    Those look positively amazing!

    I saw Black Swan last week … interesting movie.

  20. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    I don’t know if I like marzipan but those sound lovely!

    Oh, and I soo need to see the black swan too! Though, I was told to wait for it to go to dvd because it’s kind of disturbing and I get rather squeamish in the move theater. 😉

  21. Kath Lockett

    As an orange chocolate and dessert eater/lover, I also ADORE marzipan. These little guys look wonderful!

  22. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    oh Hannah, these look sooooooo delicious! I really want to see black swan! i really think you should have bought that puppy too – that is my mind speaking here, I want one so badly! loving the agave use, yum!
    Heidi xo

  23. Simply Life

    oh wow! these are so impressive!!

  24. Carla

    oh my these look amazing! added to the ever growing to make list!

  25. Louise

    I quite like marzipan, but not overwhelming marzipan flavour, if that makes sense. These do sound rather delicious. Low GI! And so easy to make. On my recent trip to NZ, I had an amazing swedish marzipan confection called “eco vacuum cleaner”, which I have since discovered are called dammsugare in Swedish- which is a fabulous name. Oh, I want one now. The one I had had delicate gingerbread spicing, it was magnificent.

  26. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn

    A girl after my own heart! I am a marzipan FIEND, I love you times a million for posting this recipe

  27. Vaala ◪

    Your ground almond measurement looks like eleven quarters!

    Or is the joke on me?

  28. Susan

    We just watched black swan on the weekend. Very intense and strange film. Very good though! Those look delicious and something I would very easily snack on. Aldi have some truffles out at the moment which are delicious and too easy to eat!

  29. Johanna GGG

    I am very partial to marzipan but would prefer chocolate to cocoa – though I’d prefer someone else did it – and have never liked the idea of almond essence – that is a tad almond flavour too far for me! Am wondering if this marzipan would work in baking such as stollen or choc chip cookies – I know it is not really in tune with raw baking but I have seen some great recipes with marzipan in it.

  30. Ashley @ the fit academic

    Sounds AMAZING! And yet so easy to make! Win-win!

  31. theresa

    Those sound pretty delicious, but so does pumpernickel bread. I haven’t eaten that stuff since I was a kid hanging with my grandma. Also, going to see Black Swan this weekend!

    And, hi! Life is getting back to normal, and I finally have a chance to read some blogs. Happy to be reading you again 🙂

  32. hungryandfrozen

    Once more, you are the harbinger of food in the form of delicious balls. These sound amazing and simple and I can actually anticipate both the flavour and the texture of all those ground almonds. Funnily enough I am unmoved by agave tastewise, to me it’s just arrestingly sweet, without the depth of honey or golden syrup…but I respect its useful place in the world and its relative good-for-you-ness.

    Also: Jug Puppy!!!!!

  33. Lexi

    Oooooo! balls in the fridge = I like, cause they’re always there when you get home late etc. I might have to indulge this weekend!

    I saw Black Swan the other day and it left me a little unsatisfied. But it was entertaining, nonetheless. It is certainly NOT a food film, though..

  34. GirlonRaw

    I HATE marzipan but I love all those ingredients so I’ll have to try them out for sure. They look very reminiscent of my donut holes I bought from Pure Market Express (a raw food delivery company in the US). They use brazil nuts I think…..

  35. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Ok, hold the phone – there are people out there who HATE MARZIPAN?! The nerve!

    These look SO very delicious. I assume the almonds should be very finely ground?

  36. Loren

    Oh wow, those look incredible. I think I might try these tomorrow if I get time. Hmm nom nom nom

  37. Choclette

    Love marzipan & love cinnamon – these have got to be worth making and will add to my slowly growing raw cocoa repertoire. They look really good too.

  38. ck

    And I had started thinking I was the only person on the planet who loves marzipan! I am not alone after all. So going to have to make these. Where in Canberra do you get raw cacao?

  39. Jasmine

    OMG!! I LOVE marzipan!!
    Those look delicious. I know what some people mean about not liking, when I was a kid, well, technically I still am(l’m 14) I used to hate it till one day I was really hungry and the first thing I saw was my mothers marzipan bar – to this day she doesn’t know I took it, she thinks it went missing lol. Y’ know my dad just bought me six bars!!! And I went to have one, and found two missing lol, so I guess we’re even. 😀
    Can’t wait to try them!!

    P.s. You should try making madelienes my way – use cupcake cases and 115g for all the ingredients. And for the piece de resistance, passion fruit icing (great on round shortbread biscuits, especially at xmas). To make it use the insides of 1 passion fruit and mix with icing sugar till it tastes like a bowl of heaven!! (icing recipe courtesy of
    my mother). Can’t wait!! 🙂

  40. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Why haven’t I seen these before?!?!?!?!?!?! 😯 😯 😯

  41. Mercia

    Today your raw marzipan balls was on experiment in my Hobart kitchen
    Being raw vegan , I really enjoy your recipes. Next would be the Anzac cookies since the day is coming up soon.
    Thanks you are an sweet inspiration!

  42. Susan

    Omg, I love marzipan and love you for posting this recipe even if I am just seeing it 2 years later lol….. But I have a problem , I have some of these in my fridge right now , but my balls didnt stay in “ball” form…. They are kinda saggy haha, anyway was wondering if this ever happened to you and how did you fix it, maybe add more almond flour?

    I often make the raw choc brownies -sometimes using avocado or raw soaked cashews for the topping. I’ve decided to use only use raw honey or coconut palm nectar for sweetening-i had used agave in the past but from what i now understand it’s not such a healthy sweetener.My new favorite recipe is coconut flour lemon/chia muffins-awesome!Totally Gluten-Free and Vegan.
    BTW Hannah-what’s the deal with the Pizza Hut ad at top of your page-doesn’t seem very appropriate?
