Marzipan has always held a special place in my heart. When I was a little girl, my German born father would take me to a part of the city that had many German stores, including an incredible shop called The Elk Candy Company. Their specialty was little marzipan figurines or bonbons made with cake, chocolate and marzipan and I always chose the cutest one. And sometimes, even when we didn't go there, my father would come home from work and there would be a little marzipan candy in his pocket for me as a surprise.
A few weeks ago, however, I was browsing through the collection of syrups from Amoretti and they had marzipan. I had to try it! I was almost afraid to be disappointed that the flavor might not be correct but it's dead on. Marzipan candy in liquid form.
Naturally it's very sweet and needs to be mixed in with something. Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I've been thinking about ice cream shakes made for two, like the frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity. So why not a marzipan ice cream shake for two? I added some bourbon to cut the sweetness and up the fun and two straws to make it romantic. Although, to be honest, I'd really have to care about you to share this because I kind of want it all to myself. Enjoy!
