  1. Cut the marzipan into 12 equal pieces, then roll into balls. Transfer to a wire rack and place a sheet of baking paper underneath.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of just-simmering water. Spoon the melted chocolate over the balls so they are covered.
  3. Top with desiccated coconut, chopped pistachios, cocoa powder or gold edible glitter. Transfer to the fridge (on the rack) for 10 mins or until set. Will keep for up to 1 week in a cool place.
