Chocolate Christmas Trees
Keywords: parenting, baking with kids
Easy to make, relatively cheap and makes a great present to your older kids teachers or our neighbours! Get the kids involved for a fun festive activity.
- About 300g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
- 1 1/2 cups rice bubbles
(The cheap ones work just as well, you can use coco pops although it might be just a little too much chocolate)
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut
- Melt the chocolate and add rice bubbles and coconut and mix together.
- Spoon the mixture onto a tray (I line the tray with alfoil although baking paper is just as good) into a cross shape.
- Make 6 of these crosses, each one a little bigger than the last.
- Save some chocolate mix for joining them together.
- Chill in fridge for about half hour, or until they are set.
- Place the biggest cross on the melamine plate, put a little of the extra chocolate on the bottom of the next biggest and place on top (have the cross parts going in different directions, ie a “x” and a “t” so it looks like the branches of a christmas tree)
- Do this with the rest of the crosses.
- Put back in the fridge for another half hour or until set.
- If you are giving as a gift dust with icing sugar and top with a star or angel shaped biscuit as a tree topper and then wrap in cellophane.
