Oh Christmas Tree!

We have been having fun with these delicate and fragile yet festive white chocolate trees this holiday season. They are ever so easy to do... simply melt a small amount of white chocolate, or dark if you prefer. Put the melted chocolate into a parchment triangle, snip the tiniest whole at the tip of the triangle, and draw the icing tree on a sheet of wax paper. In no time flat, you'll have a veritable forest of trees on the cookie tray. They keep well in the fridge to use as a garnish for your favorite dessert.
Be forewarned tho, they are indeed fragile, so make some extra to keep on hand to quickly replace a broken tree. They're fun!

What a great idea! Thanks for the tip, it is tucked in my mind now for the perfect time to use it. I bet the idea could be used for other holidays too.
