Since I was a child, I have always felt a little sorry to cut my health with the parties when I spent the day of Kings. That's why at home we usually prepare some sweet treats for parting the parties, which as a child I used to take to school to share. These cake pops or marzipan biscuits They are perfect to say goodbye to Christmas and take advantage of possible remains of almond dough.
Nowadays it is easy to find specific molds for cake pops, but they can be done the same by baking the dough on a tray and cutting cubes or forming balls with your hands, shaping them with some cream cheese. The final finish does not matter as much as having a good time with the children putting their hands in the dough, before recovering the routine.
