Marzipan Snowballs Recipe
We’ve added a bit of cocoa and rum to these snowballs, but they still taste great without those additions. Watch the video.

20 Marzipan Snowballs


30 minutes

  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder,
  • 1- 7 oz box Odense Almond Paste or Marzipan*
  • 1 cup melted white coating chocolate
  • 1 cup shredded (aka flaked) coconut
  • *Marzipan will be sweeter than Almond Paste, but either can be used.
1. Mix together the rum and cocoa powder to form a thick paste. If too liquid, add a bit more cocoa powder.
2. Knead the chocolate-rum paste into the Marzipan.
3. Form into about 20 bite-sized balls.
4. Dip each ball in the coating chocolate, letting the excess drip off, and then toss in the shredded coconut. Transfer to parchment paper to dry.
5. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
