Candy Christmas Trees for the Table

Share Button

Some years, my boys and I make these little candy trees for our Christmas table. We place one next to each plate, along with a place card and this little poem:

The pure green color of the stately fir tree
remains green all year round,
depicting the everlasting hope of mankind. 
All the needles point heavenward,
making it a symbol of man’s thoughts
turning toward heaven.

 I love all the symbols of Christmas and I am always looking for fun ways to teach my family what they represent.

We  hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Candy Trees for the Table

Rollos, wrapped in gold
Miniature Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, wrapped in green
Hershey Kisses, wrapped in green

Start with a Rollo for the base of the tree.  Using some craft glue or a glue gun attach two Reese’s peanut butter cups and a Hershey kiss to form a tree. Place one tree next to each plate along with the poem.

    What a fun idea!

    Made the Oreo stuffed choc. chip cookie recipe off of y’all’s blog last night and we enjoyed them with milk. =)

    Have a wonderful TENNESSEE Christmas! (I think I read that you live in Tenn. I was raised in TN…in Friendsville…close to Maryville, and 30 mins. from the Great Smokey Mountains! Tennesee is “God’s Country” if you ask me. =)

      Heather,
      I’m glad you liked the Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. Perfect with milk! I love that you are in Argentina and cooking off The Sisters Cafe. It’s been fun to read your comments. We actually got Melanie in Utah for Christmas this year. (It’s ironic because she actually had a white christmas in Tennessee last year and NO white Christmas in Utah this year… too funny!) So glad you had a Merry Christmas (and Chicken a la Kind) in Argentina! Mindy

    love it!! Perfect for little kids too – they can help make them, love to look at them (partly because they are candy, haha!) and you can talk to them about what it means while your doing it! Thanks Mel!
