Apricot & Marzipan Pralines

We have a big family do tomorrow and I made pralines today as a snack to accompany the afternoon teas and coffees.
The recipe is from a book called Pralines & Confectionary that came with various gadgets like chocolate dipping forks.

First I chopped up 50g dried apricots. I then kneaded the apricots and 100g marzipan until I had a homogenous mass.

After the marzipan/apricot “dough” had rested in the fridge for 15 minutes I rolled it out and cut it in squares. Next I melted some dark chocolate (68% cocoa) and dipped the squares in the chocolate until they were fully covered. I garnished the pralines with a slice of dried apricot and that was it.

The pralines are fairly easy and mess free to make. They look pretty and taste lovely. I’m sure they will fly off the table tomorrow.
