Sweetheart Chocolate and Marzipan Bites
Running out of time for Valentine’s Day? Here’s a sweet morsel you can whip up for that “special someone” in just a few minutes.
A little marzipan is tucked underneath a dollop of our Chocolate Schmear in a mini tart shell. When warmed, the Schmear softens and its flavor blooms. Pop these in the oven for a few minutes then top with a slice of fresh strawberry or a few raspberries. If you’re feeling crafty, mold tiny heart from marzipan to garnish each tartlet before serving. You’ll find buttery tartlet shells at specialty supermarkets but frozen phyllo dough shells will work just as well.

Chocolate Marzipan Heart Cake
The rich flavors of marzipan and chocolate always spell romance. This is a delicious special occasion cake, made stunning with a marzipan plaque made from a House on the Hill Mold. (Tinted Love’n Bake Marzipan rolled and cut out in a heat shape will also do the trick.)
We made this heart-shaped cake with basic brownie mix but any brownie recipe made in heart-shaped pans will do. Cover it with a 5-minute chocolate glaze and you have the perfect canvas for marzipan embellishments.
