Christmas is the perfect time to treat yourself... and make some special memories with the kids. These chocolate-covered strawberry Christmas trees can be the best of both worlds - they're a delicious sweet treat and they're a blast to make with the kids... Not too tricky, and you don't have to make a big mess to make them.
They're super cute, and perfectly suited to the season. Chocolate and strawberries is always a good pairing. Put it on top of a crunchy Oreo and dress it up like a Christmas tree, and it's even better! Merry Christmas!
- 12 ounces dark green candy melts
- 1 pound of strawberries, stems removed
- 24 Oreo cookies
- White Icing
- Candy Stars
- 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- Add water by the teaspoon and whisk until the desired consistency is reached.
Spoon or pipe a small amount of icing onto the top of each Oreo. This will adhere the strawberry to the cookie base.
Melt the candy melts in the microwave at 25-30 second intervals. Once candy melts are fully melted, turn the heat to low while you dip the strawberries using a toothpick inserted into the cut end.
Shake off excess candy coating gently. Using a second toothpick inserted into the pointed end of the dipped strawberry, carefully place the strawberry on top of the icing on the Oreo.
Decorate with sprinkles and a candy star while the candy coating is still wet. It will usually dry in about 10 minutes.
