It really is up to your imagination…you can just roll it into cacao powder or make figures out of it (it behaves like edible playdough) or roll it out and cut cookies out of it or slice it…anything your heart desires. Serve as it is or use your healthy marzipan to decorate a birthday cake. You'll save the planet from lots of trash and it will probably save you some $$$!
They’re a really good snack choice for diabetics too, because they’re high in protein and low in carbohydrates.
