Chocolate & Marzipan Winter Wonderland (Practical Mondays #40)

*Practical Mom will be on Summer Break till 9th January, however Practical Mondays #40 will remain open till then. 
Happy Holidays!*

OK FINE! I finally gave into this hugely popular christmas tradition after all! I knew for sure you don’t get molasses easily at my neighbourhood mall, so I didn’t bother making a gingerbread house, chocolate bars however are available anywhere & everywhere, including my own kitchen.

While I purchased Marzipan (had made it earlier around), I had a lot of leftover icing, food coloring, tiny M&Ms and what not from previous baking projects. 

Our Winter Wonderland is 100% edible! 

i.e. if you don’t include toothpicks. 

...And the straw that held the roof together.

 Chocolate at room temperature is easy to cut! We used almond thins for the roof

 Left over icing served as 'cement'. The almond thins kept falling off nonetheless! I finally shoved it in the fridge praying for a miracle. Found it nicely solidified next morning. 

 Readymade Marzipan served as dough for snowmen, presents & wreath. The best part was sifting powdered sugar over the whole project!! We def were running the risk of overdoing it.
