Strawberry Christmas Tree

xmas tree photoDo you want to knock your guests socks off at the annual Christmas party? Bring this. Made this a two years ago and it’s not that hard, but looks spectacular! Give it a try!

You need a Styrofoam tree that you can easily find at Spotlight or at any craft shop (I bought mine in Spotlight).
You will also need a round cardboard cake round for stability and a doily for disguise if you like but not necessary.
I also bought 3 packages of strawberries and 2 packages of chocolate melts.

Cover the tree with strawberries with baking paper. Tuck in the ends and tape to secure it to the cone. Use melted chocolate (I microwaved it) to stick the tree to the base. Cut the hole in the doily and slip it over the tree.

Separate the strawberries by size and remove the greenery. Dip the large ends of the biggest berries in the chocolate and place the on the bottom of the tree. Add the next layers with the medium sized strawberries, saving the small ones for the top.

Spread chocolate on the top of the tree and scoop the melted chocolate into a small plastic bag, snip the tiniest hole in one corner, pipe a few stars on a piece of baking paper and pop them in the fridge until they hardened.

Using a bit more melted chocolate, add a couple of stars onto the top of the tree and Voila!!

Enjoy it and have all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
