Christmas Candy (Gluten Free)

This post contains affiliate links. See my full disclosure HERE.

This Christmas candy is a traditional  Hungarian treat that is so popular there that I’ve never seen a Christmas tree without it. There are many kinds of Christmas candy but I’m going to share our favorite one, the marzipan Christmas candy in a special wrapping.

For the wrapping that will give the ultimate traditional look of the originally called “szaloncukor,” all you need is white tissue paper, scissors and little wrapping foils. If you are looking for the same wrapper I use in this recipe, I have it in my amazon store here.

Christmas Candy

This is a traditional Hungarian marzipan Christmas candy that is tasty and good for decorating the Christmas tree.


  • 2 C - Almond Flour
  • 1/3 C - Maple Syrup
  • 3 tsp - Almond Flavor
  • 1 C - Cocoa Butter


    1. Melt the cocoa butter on a very low setting, being careful to not burn it.

    2. Mox the almond flour, maple syrup, and almond flavor together. Then add the melted cocoa butter.

    3. Once combined, refridgerate for 15 minutes (not more so it's still soft enough to shape).

    4. Shape the battery into an egg shape using about 2tbsp of batter for each candy. I like to use silicone mats so the candy is easy to remove and wrap

    5. Place candy back in the refridgerator for at least an hour, but preferably a few hours.

    6. Wrap the candies in foils. I linked the foils I like to use above in this post. It’s very simple to wrap, just place the foil first on the table then the white tissue paper that has been cut in with little sections on the both ends. Place the marzipan on the top and roll them up.
