Ingredients

Marzipan Base

  • 200 g walnuts
  • 100 g date sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Green Matcha layer

  • 1 tsp matcha powder

Purple Aronia Layer

  • 2 tsp Aronia powder (beetroot, raspberry powder works too)

White Layer

  • 1 tsp oatmeal
  • 100 g vegan chocolate

Instructions

Marzipan Base

  • In your blender, blend the walnuts so you get a thick paste. Don't overmix it otherwise you will end up with walnut butter (if that happens just add more oatmeal).
  • Remove the walnut paste from the blender and transfer into a clean bowl.
  • Here you add the date sugar and vanilla. Mix everything with your hands.

Create the layers

  • Divide the dough into 4 parts. Add matcha to the first, aronia to the second a a teaspooon of oat meal to the other 2 bowl each. Form 4 balls with your hands.
  • Transfer the to the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • REmove from the fridge and and roll them out on waxed paper (using a rolling pin) so it won't stick to the surface. It's best to roll them out next to each other to make sure they all have sort of the same size.
  • Once you have done that layer them on top of each other - starting with a plain walnut layer, then the matcha layer, followed by another plain walnut layer and finish with the aronia layer.
  • Now remove the trim so you end up with a big square. Now cut the big square in smaller bite-size squares depending on how big you would like them. I ended up with 24 squares.
  • Now return them to the freezer for an hour so they can rest and harden a bit. If they more firm it is much easier to chocolate coat them!
  • Melt the chocolate and dip each petite four into the chocolate. Once the chocolate has set, they are ready to eat!
