Baked apples with candied walnuts

The last two days I have been in complete denial. My two weeks of vacation are over (many of you will probably be working already for a couple of days) and I always get rather gloomy when that happens. While others are already working on their new year’s resolutions and digging out the healthy recipes after days of feasting. I’m not though. I wanna stay in the culinary christmas wonderland just a tad longer.

The last days the temperature dropped way below zero here in Germany and while being curled up in front of the fireplace I do NOT want to eat some low calorie meal. So I spend the last night under a thick blanket, binge watching telly shows and making those fabulous baked apples with candied walnuts.

Those babies are filled with a lovely mixture of marzipan and candied walnuts. You can use store bought candied walnuts of course or you could very easily make your own. I used this quick, no fuss recipe from Natasha’s kitchen. If you want to use a different filling for the apples, you certainly can. A lot of people like other kinds of nuts or dried fruit as a filling, but I think apples and marzipan are match made in heaven. The baked apples with candied walnuts take a while in the oven, so you need to be patient there, but they are prepared really quickly.
