Making Chocolate Trees

Chocolate Trees are so easy to make and transform any dessert into something unique and special.

  • Author: Melissa
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 minute
  • Total Time: 6 minutes
  • Yield: varies

Ingredients

  • Chocolate Melts – Dark Brown
  • A zip tight bag or candy squeeze bottle
  • Wax Paper

Other possible equipment:

  • scissors
  • Baking Sheet lined with wax paper that will fit into the refrigerator

Instructions

  • place wax paper on your work surface
  • Using a small microwave proof glass bowl, melt the chocolate melts
  • *I typically melt mine for 1 minute in the microwave and stir until smooth. If needed, I pop the chocolate melts back in for 30 more seconds and stir until smooth
  • Pour the warm chocolate into the squeeze container or bag =(squeeze out the excess air, and zip tight – snip a corner for chocolate to squeeze through)
  • Now, just start drawing trees:
  • Start with the middle of the tree – the main straight part. squeeze the chocolate out into a line and repeat next to the line, going up and down – making the tree wider until you like the width
  • Then form  a V at the top
  • add branches from the V, making smaller V’s at the tips

Notes

Haunted Trees:

  • To make the trees really spooky, add 2 candy eyes, and red candy sprinkles for bat eyes. When chocolate dries, add black eyebrows with black cookie frosting to the candy eyes

To dry trees: simply let the trees harden at room temperature. Time will vary depending on the temperature in your room – or – use that wax-lined baking sheet to pop them into the fridge for a minute to two
