This must be one of the easiest edible craft ideas for Christmas. In just a few moments you can create the most beautiful little chocolate Christmas trees. And up to now I haven’t met a person who didn’t adore these.
You can make them in any chocolate you wish – my kids love white chocolate, me I prefer milk chocolate and my Monsieur swears by dark chocolate. You can make a tree for every taste. I recently saw a caramel chocolate in the grocery store – that might be absolutely perfect with some flaky sea salt sprinkled on top…
These pretty and fun Christmas trees serve wonderfully as snacks for the kids, you can use them as cake toppers or edible decorations for your holiday dessert table.
I used Mikado cookie sticks for the tree trunk and two kinds of chocolates for more fun. The decorations are entirely up to you. Any kind of sprinkles are lovely. You can also use small bits of dried fruit, pearl sugar or chocolate chips of a different color.
This is really the easiest and the cutest edible craft you can make with your kids this holiday season. Try it out!
Chocolate Christmas Trees on Cookie Sticks Recipe
- Chocolate covered cookie sticks (Mikado cookies in my case)
- Chocolate of your choice
- Edible decorations
Melt the chocolate in a microwave oven or over a double boiler.
Place the chocolate covered cookie sticks on a parchment paper, leaving enough space between each cookie to make the tree branches.
Transfer the melted chocolate in a piping bag (or a simple freezer bag).
Chop off a small end of the piping bag and draw the Christmas tree branches with melted chocolate.
Use your edible decorations to create pretty little Christmas trees.
Work on maximum four to five trees at a time, otherwise the chocolate will solidify before you’ll get to decorating and the sprinkles won’t stick any more.
Let harden for at least 30 minutes.
There you have it. Pretty homemade Christmas tree decorations that are so much fun to make and look so adorably cute!
- Small bits of dried fruit
- Pearl sugar
- Chocolate chips of a different color
