Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Almond Marzipan Theme Week. I combined yet anther style of marzipan, with cocoa coated toasted almonds.

Calissons (diamond-shaped marzipan, honey and fruit confections) typically found in southern France or Italy - mai oui! Cocoa Roast Almonds (from Diamond Foods) sweetened with artificial sweetener Sucralose? Not so much.

Originally, I had planned to dip some gluten-free almond cookies (made from almond flour and sugar) in some melted chocolate. Alas, the cookies were past their freshness date. Thank you to The Chocolate Garage community for coming to the rescue and supplying the Calissons.
