2. alcohol-free alternative to mulled gin

In addition to the classic mulled wine, more and more alcoholic mulled drinks have made a name for themselves at Christmas markets in recent years. First and foremost: the mulled gin!

3. Non-alcoholic Moscow Mule – Laori Mule

The Moscow Mule is a perfect winter drink. The warm feeling of ginger in the throat, the scent of mint and a slight acidity: all of this describes the alcohol-free Moscow Mule. With Laori Juniper No 1 we conjure up alcohol-free, liquid winter in your glass!

4. Vegan vanilla crescents

Christmas time is cookie time! We particularly liked this vegan vanilla croissant recipe. It's quick and easy and gives you magical cookies!


  • 150 g spelled flour
  • 50 g powdered sugar
  • 50 g grated almonds
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 90 g margarine
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

For pollination:

  • 35 g powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 165 degrees and line a tray with baking paper
  • Sift spelled flour and powdered sugar into a bowl, mix in the ground almonds, ground vanilla and vanilla sugar
  • Add the margarine cut into small pieces and add the lemon juice
  • Knead the ingredients with both hands until you can form the dough into a ball.
  • Divide the dough into 5-6 portions, knead each portion of dough again into a ball and roll it out oblong on a work surface
  • Tear out pieces of dough the size of gnocchi, roll them into sausages between the palms of your hands and place them slightly curved on the baking tray
  • Bake the vanilla crescents for 12 minutes; they should not get dark, just slightly brown at the ends
  • Mix the powdered sugar with the ground vanilla and sift over the vanilla crescents. Enjoy!

5. Chocolate-coated fruits

We all know chocolate fruits from Christmas and fairs. But you can also easily make them yourself at home. You only need a few ingredients and there are no limits to your creativity.


  • Fruit of your choice
  • 500 g couverture or chocolate
  • Wooden skewers


  • Wash the fruit and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Then put it on the skewers. Either one type per skewer or mixed
  • To prepare the water bath, fill water into a large pot and hang a smaller pot inside.
  • Crush the couverture or Chocolate and add it to the smaller pot and let it melt. Meanwhile, stir several times
  • As soon as the chocolate coating has melted, the fruits are chocolate-coated with help. Place the finished skewers on a tray and let them cool. Enjoy!

6. Roasted nuts

No matter whether it's almonds, peanuts or cashews: roasted nuts are the ultimate Christmas market classic. Today we'll show you how you can easily make roasted nuts at home! The good thing about it is that the roasted nuts are not only cheaper than at the Christmas market, but you can choose whatever you feel like!


  • 250 g nuts of your choice
  • 200 g sugar
  • 125 ml water
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt


  • Line a baking tray with baking paper
  • In a pot, on the highest level, mix the sugar together with salt, cinnamon and water and as soon as the sugar solution starts to boil add the nuts and stir well
  • Turn the heat down to medium and simmer until the water has evaporated and the sugar crystallizes again, stirring occasionally
  • When the sugar has started to crystallize, you should start stirring continuously until the nuts start to shine
  • Immediately remove the nuts from the heat, spread them on the baking tray and let them cool. Enjoy!
