Christmas Calendar 2020 Day 14 - Marzipan bread with Grand Marnier

Today it is time to make yet another portion of Christmas sweets, this time "marzipan breads" with orange peel and Grand Marnier. I have found this recipe in the weekly magazine "Søndag" (issue 45/2020). I decided to work with chocolate coating instead of normal dark chocolate, as you do not need to temper a chocolate coating as you have with normal chocolate. You only need to melt the chocolate coating, and when it is ready to use.

Marzipan bread with Grand Marnier: - 20 marzipan breads
  • 1 organic orange - only the zest
  • 250 g marzipan
  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 200 g dark chocolate coating
  • pistachio nut - small-medium chopped
  1. Knead the marzipan, orange zest & Grand Marnier together by hand in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Place the marzipan cold for 30 minutes.
  3. Roll the marzipan mass in long smaller roll, which when is flatten in square size. 
  4. Cut the marzipan roll into 20 smaller square pieces.
  5. Place the marzipan pieces cold again for minimum 30 minutes.
  6. Melt the dark chocolate coating.
  7. Coat the marzipan bread pieces one by one, place the coated marzipan bread on a piece of baking parchment, and sprinkle at once with chopped pistachio nuts, as the chocolate coating is set very fast.
  8. After setting of the chocolate coating, place the marzipan bread in airtight containers.
