Ingredients

  • 7 ounces marzipan, depending on size of figs
  • Brown food coloring
  • 30 dried Calimyrna figs

Cook's Note

Refrigerate in airtight containers up to 1 week.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place marzipan in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add food coloring, a drop at a time, beating until desired shade is reached.

  2. Step 2

    Keeping marzipan wrapped in plastic while working, roll a teaspoon of marzipan into a small ball. Flatten in your hand; using a toothpick, make a hole in center. Insert fig stem into hole; mold marzipan around top of fig. Roll marzipan firmly against the small holes of a box grater to make dimples. Repeat with remaining marzipan and figs.
