Today we're making large quantities of Christmas candy.
So the whole family needs to get to work. We'll begin first thing in the morning – and keep going most of the day, almost like an assembly line.
Once we reach evening time we'll all be very tired and full – you have to do a bit of taste-testing after all...
The rest of the candy will be wrapped up and saved for Christmas eve and Christmas day.
Roll the marzipan into small balls; then squeeze them a little to make them slightly oval. Press them down onto an egg slicer to make nice ridges. Dip them in melted dark chocolate and decorate with a white star or other pretty things.
Pour melted dark chocolate into silver-colored drip catchers. Fill them about halfway. Make small balls out of marzipan or nougat and add one to each drip catcher. Add more melted chocolate to cover. Finish with 1/2 walnut on top. You could also use blanched almonds or some other decoration.
