Chocolate marzipan Easter eggs make a delicious treat for the holidays. A sugar free marzipan is shaped into eggs, dipped in low carb friendly chocolate and then decorated.
This is an easy recipe and a fun way of using marzipan. Although this recipe covers them in chocolate you could colour the marzipan, then shape them into eggs for an Easter treat or cake decoration.
How to make marzipan Easter eggs
First you need to know how to make marzipan! Follow my recipe for sugar free marzipan and you are half way there. I used half the recipe and it made a lot of eggs.
Tear small balls off the marzipan block and shape them into eggs. I will confess that I had an egg infront of me for guidance as I tweaked the shapes.
You could keep the marzipan eggs as a whole egg and dip in chocolate, but I chose to cut the egg shapes in half purely because it would be easier to cover in chocolate and decorate.
Keep them plain or have fun decorating them. The eggs in the photos were decorated with a cream cheese icing. I blended softened cream cheese with a powdered low carb and a dash of cream to make the mixture smooth. The mixture was then piped over the chocolate marzipan eggs.
