10 Minute Dark Chocolate Marzipan Candy (Vegan and Gluten Free)

I love marzipan candy from See's and it has been on my list to try my hand at making it for a while now.  But we don't eat corn syrup, which is generally one of the ingredients.

I recently bought some brown rice syrup to make another recipe and thought it might be a good substitute, and it is!

So today I made myself a little treat, some 10 Minute Dark Chocolate Marzipan Candies.  They are quite good and if you like marzipan they hit the spot.

I ended up using some almond meal in mine, because it is what I had on hand, but to make a more traditional looking candy you woudl want to use almond flour or simply grind some blanched almonds in the food processor.

These are not exactly traditional and a bit softer than Marzipan I have had in the past.

Enjoy.. and let me know if you make them!  And if you love candy don't miss our CopyKat Trader Joe's Cowboy Bark.
