Sweet treats in Europe

Sweet Treats in Europe

Sweet treats in Europe can turn a no-sweets-please-eater to a complete sugar freak. These indulgent treats can cause a serious addiction and you might never want to leave the “Old continent”. Here’s a list of our favourites.

*Warning, this post will make you hungry.*

Gelato in Italy

The choices of flavours are endless when it comes to gelato. We are still trying to sample them all.

Waffles in Belgium

Yes, the locals claim we should eat the waffle on its own with just a little bit of sugar. But it tastes so much better when topped with strawberries, chocolate and whip cream! Not to forget the mini-flag of Belgium.

Sacher Torte in Austria

Stepping up in class, this cake has been around for almost 200 years. Dark chocolate, chocolate sponge cake and layer of apricot jam…let’s not forget the whipped cream! Yup, we are in heaven and we certainly do lick that silver fork.

Trdelnik in the Czech Republic

It might have three different names, depending on where you get it, but the Czech Republic seems to deliver the best. Hot, fluffy and delicious, the newest version includes Nutella filling. Well, it would be rude to say no.

Churros in Spain

Nothing gets you out of bed quicker than a promise of fresh hot churros dipped in chocolate. Well done Spain, very well done.

Baklava in Turkey

As it wasn’t enough to create a dessert from filo pastry and nuts, someone creative has thought of holding it together with rich syrup and honey. Boom! One of the most decadent sweet treats was born. Thank you.

Macarons in France

Macaron is the king of all sweet treats. Tiny and scrumptious, it leaves you wanting more. That is probably the main reason why it is so petite.  Vive la France!

About the Author

I was born in Slovakia, a small country in the heart of Europe. I always wanted to see the world, learn languages and experience other cultures. So I packed my bags at the age of 18 and left to do it all. I've lived in 6 different countries, speak 5 languages and I am currently on a trip to visit every country in the world. Hopefully I'll be the first European woman to do so, with many more to follow.
