I wanted to share this great idea again for a Christmas centerpiece that’s even more delicious than it is beautiful—an edible Christmas tree! Every year friends and family look forward to this beautiful and sumptuous decoration. Read on to learn how to create your very own. There’s a video at the end that brings it all together.
- Crock pot for melting chocolate
- Florida Strawberries
- Melting chocolate – white or milk chocolate
- Toothpicks with which to dip the berries in chocolate
- Leaf lettuce to cover cone
- Styrofoam cone size of your choice
- Parchment paper to cool and set the berries on to set chocolate to prevent sticking and make clean-up easier.
Wash and dry strawberries and place a toothpick in each strawberry.
Dip the strawberries in chocolate and place each strawberry on parchment paper until chocolate is set and hardened.
Cover the Styrofoam cone with green leaf lettuce using toothpicks to hold in place. This makes the presentation much nicer after berries are removed from the cone.
Secure the dipped berries on the cone with a toothpick. Start at the base of the cone and work your way up and around the cone. Continue until the entire cone is covered with berries. Add the final berry at the peak of the cone.
