Very easy to make as a single tree or for a production line for those who need several. They are a good activity for older children, I made these every year with secondary school students as a fun activity at the end of the school year and found that each year students were expecting to make them. I recall one student telling me that "you need presents under the tree" and he had come prepared with ' licorice allsorts' to decorate the base of his tree.
To make the tree you need to first create a cone from Contact book covering film.
Roll each triangle around your hand to make a cone shape and carefully slide the edges to form a point. Secure with a staple at the top and a piece of tape. The shiny side on the inside as this will create a non stick surface for the chocolate.
Pour chocolate mixture into the cone and tap or jiggle to make sure that it has gone to the bottom of the cone. Refrigerate until set.
Stand the cone on a piece of cooking parchment. Pipe melted chocolate over the outside of the cone to create bark and allow to set.
Repeat the process with white chocolate to create snow Add a star if you can find one. These are from a strand of Christmas garland that I purchased in the christmas sales.
Stand the cone on a piece of silver foil covered cardboard. I attachttach the cone to a board covered with foil with some melted chocolate so that it doesn't slide off the board. When set the tree can be wrapped in cellophane. Store in the fridge. The cone needs to come to room temperature to be cut up.
