Chocolate dipped marzipan stars with pistachios and freeze-dried raspberries

This is a gorgeous festive treat for any marzipan lover and it’s easy to customise.

Forget plain marzipan, you can make this almond-flavoured treat your own by adding ingredients like chopped pistachios and freeze-dried raspberries.

And, even better, you don’t need to go through the hassle of making the marzipan yourself – shop bought is perfectly fine.

Simply shape them and then dip them in chocolate to finish the look.

They’re perfect for a Christmas party, a festive after-dinner nibble or as a gift for an almond lover.
