Nothing reminds me more of the German Christmas Markets than Cinnamon Sugared Candied Nuts. When I was living in Europe for a few months late last year, I would visit the Christmas markets daily and still never pass by a candied nut stand without making a purchase. If there would be one smell that reminds me of Christmas (the winter wonderland kind of Christmas we all dream of), then this is it. Be prepared to smell out your house or apartment with a sweet, sugary, cinnamon extravaganza!

If you haven’t been fortunate enough to experience the glorious Christmas Markets in Europe before, then let World of Wanderlust take you there! In the lead up to Christmas you will see many of the famous Christmas Market treats recreated here and with full recipes to help you recreate them yourself!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from this moment forward, as the lead up to Christmas should be just as magical and festive as the day itself!

    Yummmm, I’ve been eating my weight in this at the Christmas Markets in Germany.

    The Christmas markets are seriously the best thing about being in Europe in December, I’ve almost turned into an alcoholic with all the Gluhwein I’ve been downing!
