And I wanted to share one of my favourite Christmas treats to make and eat!

I love these Chocolate trees, I usually make mine closer to Christmas and use it as a table centerpiece, its fun picking off pieces while sitting around the table or you can place on a doily, wrap in cellophane and ribbon or twine and give it as a gift. I’m going to try white chocolate with craisins and pistachios next week!

FRUIT & NUT CHOCOLATE CHRISTMAS TREE

INGREDIENTS

400g Chocolate (I use Whittakers)

1 1/3cup Chopped dried fruit (I use apricots & raisins)

125g Chopped nuts (I used sliced almonds, chopped pecans and pistachios)

Icing sugar and edible glitter to sprinkle

METHOD

-Create the star shaped template by cutting 7 pieces of waxed paper or baking paper.

-Draw a 5 pointed star shaped starting with a diameter of 16cm, 14cm, 12cm, 10cm, 8cm, 6cm and 4cm. I always draw the stars with a vivid on the underside and flip the paper over when placing the chocolate on so you can still see the outline to follow

-Break up the chocolate and melt on a double boiler

-While the chocolate is melting chop up the nuts, mix into the dried fruit

-Mix the fruit and nuts into the melted chocolate

-Place the melted chocolate mixture onto the star shape, fill in the outlines.

-Leave enough chocolate to stick the layers together

-Place the stars in the fridge to harden

-Once harden layer the stars starting with the largest then dab a bit on the top to give it a bit of height, if the chocolate has harden quickly melt it again with the double boiler

-Refrigerate again until hard

-Sprinkle with icing sugar then glitter

Doilies and the glass stand are sold on trademe
