Bake one after the other in the preheated oven (electric stove: 175 ° C / gas: level 2) for 10-12 minutes. Take out of the oven, place on a rack and let cool down. In the meantime, sieve powdered sugar onto a work surface. Dice the marzipan on top and knead into a smooth mass. Knead with red food coloring. Roll out approx. 1 mm thick on a work surface lightly dusted with powdered sugar. Cut out the same number and size of baked hearts from the marzipan blanket.
