Description

Rich, dense, and flavorful, these mini cupcakes are right-sized for a good reason. The batter is made with marzipan, available at baking supply shops and many supermarkets, which imparts nutty taste as well as moisture. After baking, the cupcakes are filled with melted white chocolate and coated with a dark-chocolate glaze. Sprinkle with lightly toasted almond slivers or chopped almonds for even more almond flavor.
