Sweet shop recipes: Marzipan sandwiches

These colourful marzipan sandwiches make great - or give them as birthday or Christmas presents. Nostalgia never tasted so good.

MAKES 25-30

INGREDIENTS
400g (14oz) ground almonds
50g (2oz) icing sugar
450g (1lb) granulated sugar
150ml (1/4pt) water
1/2tsp cream of tartar
1/2tsp almond extract
Green and pink food colouring
50g (2oz) good-quality dark chocolate, broken into small bits
30 almond slivers, to decorate


In the pink: These marzipan sandwiches taste as good as they look

METHOD
  1. Stir the ground almonds and icing sugar together and pop into a food mixer. Place the granulated sugar and water into a heavy-bottomed pan and put it on a low heat. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved - about 5-10 minutes. Put a sugar thermometer in the pan, bring the mixture to a boil and add the cream of tartar. Bubble gently for around 10-15 minutes until the syrup reaches 115C (240F) on the thermometer.
  2. Turn on the food mixer and gently add the syrup to the ground almonds in a steady shining thread. Add the almond extract and mix well. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then remove the paste from your food mixer and set aside until it is cool enough to handle.
  3. Divide the mixture into 3 equal lumps. Add a few drops of the green food colouring to one lump and the pink to a second lump and knead well. For the third lump, place 5cm (2in) of water in a pan and heat.
  4. Place a heatproof bowl on top, making sure it does not touch the water. Place the chocolate in the bowl and when it has melted add it to the paste and knead well.
  5. Place each lump between 2 pieces of clingfilm and then, using a rolling pin, roll them out until they are roughly rectangular, about 13cm x 22cm (5in x 9in) and 1/2cm thick. Layer the marzipan to make a sandwich, running the rolling pin over the top to squidge it together. Cut into squares and decorate with a sliver of almond.
