How to Make Marzipan

  • Place the sugar and 2/3 cup water in a large heavy saucepan and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
  • Uncover and boil until the temperature reaches soft-ball stage, 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  • Place the bottom of the saucepan in the cold water you have prepared, stirring the sugar mixture constantly until it becomes thick and creamy.
  • Stir in the ground almonds and the egg whites, and place it back over low heat.
  • Stir for 2 minutes more until the mixture is thick.
  • Spoon the marzipan onto your prepared work surface, and turn it with a metal spatula until it cools down enough to touch.
  • Coat your hands in powdered sugar and begin to knead the marzipan, working it until it is smooth and pliant.
  • Marzipan can now be used immediately or stored, wrapped in plastic wrap, in an airtight container.
