Jello Marzipan

Marzipan Recipe

This recipe came from the classic Joys of Jell-O recipe book and boasts a new way to make the old fashioned confection. These strawberry, cherry, orange, and banana shaped candies are molded from ground coconut and almonds and are flavored with the corresponding fruit flavored gelatin. Whole cloves and mint leaves put the finishing touches on these tiny fruits. While the taste of the finished product bears little resemblance to actual Marzipan, they are sweet and yummy, especially if you like coconut, and were very fun to make.

    The cherries are possibly the cutest, they look so right. I’d have to figure out a substitution for the cloves, though. Last year I tried to make one of those clove-studded oranges and the smell from the cloves made me sick, and now the thought of smelling cloves again – urk!
