Neapolitan Marzipan Chocolates

Edible Christmas gift, Danish, Luxury chocolates, budget, cheap, homemade, teacher gift

I came up with these chocolates after being inspired by a story from my mother’s childhood. I think homemade edible gifts are the most thoughtful ones to give and receive at Christmas. Spending quality time with your children making treats is what Christmas is all about to me. Better still you can make something that would cost mega bucks in the shops for pennies at home.

    I still have some marzipan left after making your rhubarb and marzipan Cake, so I am tempted to make a cheat’s version of these :)

    1. Camilla

      Thank you, hope you manage to make them next year:-)

  17. Janice

    They are so pretty, a beautiful gift.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Janice;-)

  18. Deena Kakaya

    Camilla they look so pretty and cleverly contructed…great job! X

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Deena, it was very satisfying and my daughter enjoyed mixing up the marzipan and dying it with the food colouring. I’m very lucky that she doesn’t mind getting sticky fingers:-)

  19. Jacqueline

    Don’t they look wonderful in that box ans so pretty to bite into. Pity I have marzipan :(

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jacqueline, as they say 2 out of 3 aint bad:-)

  20. Jen @ Blue Kitchen Bakes

    These are a great idea, I love homemade marzipan, after first making it 7 years ago I can’t go back to the bought stuff. I think the coloured marzipan makes these look really pretty and you’re right homemade gifts are much more special and very enjoyable when they’re edible :)

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jen, yep there’s nothing nice than something homemade:-)

  21. Sheila lamare

    Well, I headed over to the website and found some lovely recipes, but absolutely no trace of Neapolitan marzipan chocolates! Are you sure that Great British chefs is the right website?

    1. Camilla

      Hi, you need to click on the link “Great British Chefs” at the end of my post and it takes you straight there. You would have needed to go into the bloggers section on the site to find me and other bloggers:-)
