Coffee & Marzipan Biscuits with chocolate on top

Hi! :) 
Do You like biscuits?
This one I baked for our 4th anniversary for my boyfriend.
 Usually I bake a cake, or cupcakes for these events, but this time I decided to bake heart shaped biscuits. I think they are cute enough for the occasion. :D
 He likes coffee, I like marzipan, and we both adore chocolate, so this recipe needed to happen. :) 
(I got roses from him, and also we decided to live together, so it was a big event. :) ) 
The biscuit got a lot of good complaints, so I can recommend this to You as well. :)
