Edible Mini Christmas Trees to eat !! These would make such cute and adorable center pieces at the kids’ Christmas table – that is, if your kids have their own table … if not, they are just fine for the adult table as well, don’t you think?

As soon as I saw this idea in a magazine, I wanted to make them, so.. I made the three larger ones using standard size ice-cream cones and then I found some mini cones in my freezer as well.. they might even be cuter than the larger trees!

This is what I used :

Standard ice-cream cones

Mini cones

A variety of soft candy

Melting chocolate

Sprinkles and other cake decorations

Edible glitter

See how easy this was to make:

Standard size cones; Melt the chocolate and cover the cones – starting from the bottom, stick the candy to the chocolate {if the chocolate is still a bit runny.. hold the candy in place for 30 – 40 seconds} – round-round to the top. Sprinkle with edible glitter and chill a few minutes to set.

Mini cones; I rolled these in the melted chocolate and lightly sprinkled them with all sorts of cake decorations, chill to set.

Easy !

***A great idea which I did not do (as my kids are grown-ups and no grandkids) is to place a small toy or lolly pop inside the larger cones, use icing to “glue” the bottom to a round cookie and then start with the tree. The mini cones can have a small piece of paper with a joke or game inside,.. or even filled with caramel or mini marshmallows and closed the same way with icing and cookies. ***

Do you like them?  Do your kids have their own table at Christmas or any other occasions?

  2. These are so fun! The kids would love them. We have A Christmas Eve party with the family and always make and do fun things. I will have to remember this. I already bought gingerbread house kits for this year. The trees would be a fun thing. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  3. These are GREAT! I don't think they'd last very long on my kid's table…they'd gobble them right up!
