1. Kinder Punch
While all the grown-ups and alcohol drinkers wander around with their mulled wine, everyone else can grab some tasty Kinder Punch. Not quite sure what’s in it and it tasted completely different at every market. A mix of juices is probably the best way to describe it, but you’ve got to try some if only to keep you warm inside!
2. Bubble Waffles
I don’t even know how they get those perfectly amazing bubbles, but it’s like an explosion of goodness in every bubbly bite. Bubble waffles are served in a cone with your topping of choice!
3. Candied Nuts
You’ll find candied nuts all over European Christmas markets and the smell is just tantalizing. The candied almonds were my personal favorite.
4. Chimney Cakes
These classic European treats can be found at almost any Christmas market and are soooo worth the calories! The thing that makes these babies taste Aaahhh-mazing is that they are roasted over an open fire, which makes anything taste better right?!
5. Waffles on a Stick
Because if bubble waffles weren’t enough for you, you can now eat them on a stick! Why not!?
6. Meringue Cones
These have a German name that I can’t spell or pronounce, so we are going with “Meringue Cones.” It’s like a DQ dipped cone with meringue inside instead of ice cream. Perfect if you’re craving a dipped cone, but don’t want cold ice cream!
7. Chocolate Tools
These adorable little manly morsels were every around Europe and make a tasty gift for the tool lover in your life.
8. Gingerbread Cookies
These beautifully decorated gingerbread cookies are found at every market and are honestly just too pretty to eat, but I did my best!
9. Hot Orange Juice
Ok, this one sounds a little bit weird, but it was delicious! Sort of like a Wassail, but more orangy and more delicious!
10. Linzer Cookies
Another too-pretty-to-eat cookie, but I still did my best! These jam-filled beauties are a perfect way to finish off a European Christmas Market!
