This is the first of a series of posts we’ll write about what makes Sweet Designs’ chocolates “European Style”. We are often asked, what does European style mean? It is actually a combination of the technique used to make the chocolates, appearance, types of ingredients, and taste.
Marzipan is a sweet confection made from finely ground almonds. It has the consistency of a dense cookie dough. While somewhat common in its plain form, it can be hard to find good chocolate covered marzipan outside of Europe.
At Sweet Designs, we make two varieties of chocolate covered marzipan, pistachio and fruit. The pistachio marzipan is the more popular of the two and we offer it in a bar form or a bite size ball. It is decorated with toasted green coconut. The fruit marzipan also has a loyal following and contains finely chopped pieces of orange peel and glace apricot inside.
