- Wash the fruit and cut into bite-sized pieces. Then put on the skewers. Either one variety per skewer or mixed
- To prepare the water bath, fill a large pot with water and hang a smaller pot in it.
- Crush the couverture or chocolate and put it in the smaller pot and let it melt. Meanwhile, stir several times
- As soon as the couverture has melted, the fruits are chocolate-coated with help. Place the finished skewers on a baking sheet and let them cool. Enjoy!
6. Roasted Nuts
It doesn't matter whether it's almonds, peanuts or cashew nuts: roasted nuts are the absolute classic at the Christmas market. Today we show you how you can easily make roasted nuts at home! The good thing about it, the roasted nuts are not only cheaper than at the Christmas market, but you can choose whatever you feel like!

- Turn the heat down to medium and simmer until the water has evaporated and the sugar has crystallized again, stirring every now and then
- When the sugar has started to crystallize, you should start stirring constantly until the nuts start to shine
- Remove the nuts from the stove immediately, spread them out on the baking sheet and let them cool down. Enjoy!
