Chocolatey Christmas Trees

“I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Dollar Tree and Blueprint Social. The original ideas and opinions in this post are my own.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  As soon as Thanksgiving is over, our house and our focus shifts right to Christmas.  I put the finishing touches on our Christmas countdown, find a good hiding spot for the gifts, and get creative in the kitchen!  But with all of this excitement and novelty of the Christmas season, I need to remind myself that simple is also impressive~even when it comes to food.

Today I want to share with you these super cute Chocolatey Christmas Trees that I saw on Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club website.  My kids loved them, and they were so easy!

Dollar Tree Christmas

Since I found the recipe at the Value Seekers Club, I naturally stopped at  Dollar Tree to pick up the ingredients I didn’t already have on hand.  Before I go to a larger store, I stop at Dollar Tree to see what ingredients or craft supplies I can get~since everything is just a dollar!  One thing I really love about their candy selection is that they have all my favorite brands~and they come in a bit smaller packages. Perfect for getting just the right amount of ingredients and putting together economical, simple, yet impressive treats like these Chocolatey Christmas Trees.

While I was putting these together, I realized that getting the frosting just right on the outside of the Reese’s Cups was a bit of a challenge for me.  I found that if I used my pastry brush to brush it evenly around the edge of the Reese’s cup it made the process a lot easier.  Then, I rolled the edges in sprinkles.  For the Hershey’s kiss topper, I did the same thing.  I coated it in the green icing, and then we added the sprinkles.  Then I just followed the rest of the instructions from the Value Seekers Club website.
