Ingredients:  
2 cups ground almonds
2 1/4 cups icing sugar
1 tsp rose water
1 large egg white
Fine Dutch Cocoa - eg. Droste Cocoa

Directions:
Directions:
Mix almonds, icing sugar, rose water and egg in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Wrap in a damp towel and allow to rest over night.
Take marzipan and roll into small one inch balls.
Place cocoa, about 1/2 cup, into a small bag and toss a marzipan ball into bag. Close bag and gently roll around with your hands until the ball is covered in a light dusting of cocoa. The cocoa will cause the balls to look remarkably like baby potatos but are so much sweeter to eat! This same recipe can be used to make a variety of shapes. Instead of rolling in cocoa, add food colouring to marzipan and shape into fruits, stars or any other shape.
This is lots of fun for children and unlike playdough, marzipan is edible.
