Christmas Tree Treat Supplies / Ingredients
- 1 ½ cup Green Candy Melts
- 10 Pirouline Wafers (we used chocolate hazelnut but you can use any variety)
- 20 Milky Way Miniatures
- Candy to decorate (we used candy stars and candy coated sunflower seeds)
How to Make Christmas Tree Treats
First, cut each Pirouline Wafer in half and lay them on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Make sure to leave enough space in between each one to add the chocolate.
Melt green candy melts in the microwave (at 30 sec. increments) or with Wilton Melting Pot. Use a spoon to pour the melted green candy melts into the corner of a sandwich size baggie and snip the corner slightly to create a piping bag.
To create the trees, squeeze the green chocolate out of the piping bag in a back and forth motion, starting at the bottom and working your way up to the top.
Make sure to start out wide and keep coming in little by little until you get to a point at the top.
Make just one or two at a time so you can put the candy decorations on them before they dry. If they do dry, simply squeeze a dot of chocolate where you want to place a candy to help it stick on. When you’re done making all the trees, allow them time to sit and harden (about 5-10 minutes).
Unwrap Milky Way Miniatures and place in microwave for about 3-4 seconds, to soften very slightly. Then, very carefully push the wafer down into the middle of the Milky Way. Let harden before serving (about 5 minutes).
