Hot Apple Brandy Punch with Marzipan Whipped Cream

If you have a half hour you can really impress your guests with this lovely, seasonal warm punch that is a cinch to throw together.

Apple juice, apple pieces, and apple brandy are simmered for 10 minutes with spices and topped with marzipan studded cinnamon-scented whipped cream. Wow.

This delicious blend of seasonal and holiday flavors is sure to warm you up on these chilly autumn nights.

Serve this as an after-dinner drink for your holiday guests or forgo dessert and substitute this. I promise your guests won't notice. 

Spice things up even further by adding, some nutmeg, cardamom or even some cayenne powder to the punch.
