Here are some of the best edible Christmas trees you can create at home to enjoy the moment. The ideas below will only ask for ingredients that are easy to find at home.
Brownies Christmas Tree
This Christmas tree-shaped brownie will not need any special cutters or pans. You can just make brownies the way you normally would, then slice them into triangle-shaped pieces. Besides, you are suggested to use bamboo skewers to create a grid of triangles before you cut, so you can get as many as possible! Then, you can use green icing of your choice and drizzle over each brownie and pop in candy canes for tree trunks.
Peanut Butter Cups
If you still have some Halloween candy at home, this festive DIY is a great way to repurpose peanut butter cups of all sizes. For this project, you do not even have to turn on your oven. You will need two sizes of peanut butter cups, chocolate kisses, and melted chocolate. You are also suggested to use white chocolate so you can color it green or red for the garland drizzle. Last, wrap these up for a tasty party favor or serve them at a holiday party.
Snowy Gingerbread Christmas Tre
Gingerbread houses are popular as last year’s decoration. To make it earlier as your winter decoration, you can switch things up with these beautiful cookie trees. After that, stack different sizes of star-shaped gingerbread cookies to create a tree, held together by homemade icing. For the last, sprinkle the assembled trees with a dusting of powdered sugar for a stunning snowy effect.
Pizza Christmas Tree
Who says pizza isn’t Christmas food? This festive take on our favorite takeout dinner is a savory way to celebrate the holidays. Keep things as pine tree as possible with a pesto base, and top it with the “decorations” of your choice. We love how Sonja and Alex of A Couple Cooks arranged slices of red onion to look like garland and dotted diced red pepper all over the pie, but we’re thinking just about any of your favorite toppings can be made Christmas pizza-appropriate. Don’t forget to add a snowy dusting of mozzarella cheese!
Pasta Christmas Tree
Everybody at home loves a good pasta craft and this Pasta Christmas Tree project is no exception. The construction is layers of dyed green penne pasta are attached to a paper cone frame, then sprayed with fake snow for the beautiful look of fresh-fallen snow from icing sugar. After that, the whole tree gets topped with a homemade star and wrapped with ribbon for a magical effect. Last, let your imagination run wild and decorate this tree to the nines.
