DIY Chocolate Strawberry Christmas Trees!

DIY Chocolate Strawberry Christmas Trees!


The other day, I shared this little recipe for Baileys Truffles and it went down a storm, both here on the blog and on our Facebook page, getting so many shares there! Since then, I’ve tried the recipe myself and I can confirm that it is excellent. I just found another great recipe which looks simple and effective, so I will share this one with you too – they are DIY Chocolate Strawberry Christmas trees!!

What you need:

  • 1lb Strawberries (remove stems)
  • 12oz dark green candy melts (example)
  • 24 Oreos
  • Icing
  • Sprinkles
  • Candy stars (optional)

How to:

  1. Slowly warm the candy melts in a double boiler (or microwave gently)
  2. Spoon small bit of icing on to each Oreo
  3. Dip strawberries in green candy using a toothpick
  4. Place strawberry on Oreo
  5. Decorate with sprinkles & candy stars

It looks like it might be a little bit fiddly, but the finished products look delicious!

If you can’t get the candy melts above, I might suggest that you use white chocolate and green colouring. There’s a tutorial on that here, but you can google for more tips too.
