Are you ready to make these Chocolate Trees? Let’s make sure you have everything that you need…

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Chocolate Melts – Dark Brown
  • A zip-tight bag or a candy squeeze bottle 
  • Wax Paper
  • Other possible equipment: a small baking sheet that fits into the freezer, scissors 

How to Make Chocolate Trees

  • 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

Turning Trees into Haunted Chocolate Trees

  • While the chocolate is still melted, add candy eyes to the tree
  • You can also add red non-perils for red eyes
  • Melt black chocolate, and place into a squeeze candy bottle – add black slanted upward eyebrows over the candy eyes to make the tree look spooky and angry

Alternative to Black Chocolate Eyebrows
