The photo shows one of my Sunday projects – hand-made copies of Mozartkugeln as a Christmas present for my grandmother and her husband. Though I enjoy cooking, I have never made sweets before. I am not sure it’s something I’ll repeat very frequently – it was quite messy and rather difficult to make it look good. But they taste heavenly, and that’s the point, surely 🙂

The recipe (makes about 35 kugeln):

  • 500 g. marzipan
  • 2 tablespoons cognac
  • 150 g. nougat
  • 150 g. dark chocolate
  • cocoa

Mix the marzipan and cognac well. Cut the nougat into small pieces. Divide the marzipan mixture into 35 pieces, flatten them a bit, and put a piece of nougat on each. Roll into balls. (All of this working with marzipan is very sticky!) Melt the chocolate. Dip each ball in the chocolate and put them on a piece of baking paper. Sprinkle cocoa over, and put them in small paper cups. Store in an airtight container.
