It was Zach’s birthday this past week, and I scored major wifey points this year. As most of us should already know through Netflix, Dave Chapelle is making a comeback, which is a huge deal if you’re fan, like Zach. Anyhow he’s coming to Austin…and I got tickets! Needless to say Zach was PUMPED.

Sunday evening was the big night and beforehand we stopped at BarChi, our favorite sushi place, which is more like a nightclub. But it has bomb-a** sushi. We had wine and sake bombs and cucumber rolls until we were stuffed. Then we waddled over to the W for the show and had to put our phones in those stupid little locked baggies before we went in to the theater. So boo, we couldn’t get any photos of Dave, but we had so much fun! We laughed until our tummies hurt and enjoyed/spilled crappy $10 miniature cups of wine. Then we went home and ate tacos and tried to re-tell each other Dave jokes. We ended up sounding likeΒ this. So much happiness.

I’ve been trying to bake things that make me extra happy lately since I made a fail-cake for Zach’s birthday. It was so so bad. Feeling adventurous, I tried a new recipe that I had never tried before. Yes I know; a big NO-NO for special occasions. What sucked is that the icing was actually scrumptious (minus lumps from forgetting to sift the powdered sugar, yay me) but the cake turned into hockey pucks. Thankfully, we decided to cut into it and have a piece before taking it to dinner with the fam hence discovering just how terrible it was, thank GOD. So that whole thing made me a bit mopey.

Enter Marzipan Truffles. Marzipan makes me so perfectly happy that I could squeal. And I always forget how much I love it. My only complaint is that I wish it was more of a process to make. Marzipan is so quick and easy that I barely have any time to enjoy it. You just put some bits in a food processor and you’re done. Dipping it in chocolate and sprinkling pistachio bits (or whatever the hell you want) on top makes it a little more of a party, which is 110% okay with me. If you are wondering what the heck marzipan is, it’s what all those cute little fruits and creatures in bakeries are usually made of. Almond-y and delicious.

Vegan Chocolate Marzipan Truffles

A delightful almondy truffle with a vegan option.

  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 1/4-1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 TB maple syrup
  • 2 TB aquafaba or 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp rosewater
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips ((dairy-free))
  • 1/4 cup ground pistachios ((optional))
  • tapioca flour ((optional))
  1. Whiz almond flour & powdered sugar in a food processor until combined. Add maple, egg or aquafaba, almond extract, rosewater, & salt and whiz again. If it is too sticky add some tapioca flour.

  2. Take pieces of marzipan and roll them into balls and place on a baking sheet with parchment. Melt your chocolate over the stove with a double broiler or just microwave until melted. Roll the marzipan in the chocolate and place back on parchment sheet and sprinkle with pistachios. When done place in the freezer to harden.
