100 g Powdered Sugar
310 g Flour
60 g ground Almonds
1 Packet of Vanilla Sugar
1⁄2 tsp. Cinnamon
1⁄2 tsp. Lemon Zest
25 g Cocoa
75 g ground blanched Almonds
150 g Powdered Sugar
5 Drops Almond Flavour
5 tbsp. Water
Mix all the ingredients together and shape the dough into a ball. Roll out the dough to a 2 mm thickness and cut out cookies using our heart-shaped cookie cutter - https://chezvera.com/en/valentine-s-day. Arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180 °C and bake them about 5-7 minutes. Let your cookies cool. Your chocolate hearts are done.
Mix ground almonds with 75 g of sifted sugar. Add almond flavor to the sugar - almond mixture.
Dissolve the rest of the sugar in the water and bring it to the boil. Let the syrup cook for a while, so that the mass is thicker and reduced.
Little by little pour the sugar-almond mixture into the syrup. Mix it using a spatula and then knead it with your hands until you can form a non-sticky ball.
Roll out the marzipan to a 3 mm thickness using the same cookie-cutter as before. Your marzipan hearts are done.
Melt the chocolate. Dip half of each cookie into it. Let your cookies cool on a rack. Put the marzipan heart between two chocolate hearts.
Your chocolate hearts with marzipan are done! Bon Appetit!
