Try this: Yogurt with marzipan, poppy seeds & walnuts | in Whirl of Inspiration

I have news for you, brilliant news! I may disappeared for a while from the face of the internet, but I returned with (delicious) discoveries. Take, therefore, a chair, sit down and listen to me very very carefully. I have for you a perfect-to-the-moon-and-back recipe. Well, it's not exactly a recipe, but a more how-to mix-3-ingredients kind of fancy description. When you purchase the ingredients and you try it, come back to discuss your experience. [...] Isn't the whole world's love in a bowl? Christmas in edible form?  It is, right? I know I know, with what do you think that I survive the past weeks?

Add about 2 tablespoons of yogurt and the marzipan paste in a small saucepan. On low heat (don't the yogurt overheat or boil) dissolve the paste really well. Then add the rest of the yogurt and the poppy seeds. Last but not least, sprinkle with walnuts.

It can be eaten warm or cold, with oatmeal or not. Whatever you want.
