  • Red and green paste food coloring
  • 4 ounces marzipan
  • Confectioners' sugar, for work surface

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Knead a small amount of green food coloring into 3/4 of the marzipan until desired shade is achieved. Knead a small amount of red food coloring into the remaining 1/4.

  2. Step 2

    Roll out the green marzipan 1/8 inch thick on a work surface lightly dusted with confectioners' sugar. Brush off any excess sugar. Using a paring knife, cut out holly leaves. Using the back of a paring knife, lightly press into marzipan, creating veins. Roll small pieces of the red marzipan into tiny balls, forming holly berries.
