Strawberry Christmas Tree
This is a wonderful and creative idea for Holiday Parties. It sure beats a vegetable tray and dip.
So here it is, so simple, so easy and very impressive….
What you’ll need:
You can use either a Styrofoam tree or a Papier-mâché tree, it only needs to be about 13”, can be smaller too.
You’ll need an 8” inch round cardboard cake round and a doily to disguise to cardboard round.
3 – 4 pounds of strawberries
4 oz. Cocoa Mill Dark Chocolate
1 Tbsp. butter
Waxed Paper and Tape
Cover the tree with waxed paper, tuck the waxed paper ends under and secure with tape.
In a double boiler begin to melt the chocolate and butter slowly until it is liquid like and smooth. Place some chocolate under the doily and secure it to the cardboard cake round, let set.
Coat the bottom of the tree with chocolate and place on the doily 8” cardboard round, let cool and set again.
Separate the strawberries by size and remove the leaves. Dip the largest end of the strawberry in the melted chocolate and press into the bottom of the tree. Cover the whole bottom of the tree with dipped strawberries; continue up using the largest ones first and saving the smaller ones for the top.
Place a strawberry on top of the tree to finish this beautiful edible creation. (You can always add other fruits too if you like!)
Voila, you are done!
