This time of year you can find so many delicious holiday treats that are, of course, so hard to resist. In keeping with the tree theme this week I found this amazing chocolate covered strawberry tree that can be a wonderful treat to have out at a holiday party and can serve as a wonderful table centerpiece. Even though the holidays are filled with tons of sweets and you may want to pass up on one of these chocolate covered goodies just remember that at least this treat can provide you with a serving of fruit!

To make this delicious chocolate covered tree you will need:
     - a Styrofoam Cone
     - Box of Toothpicks (make sure they are sturdy enough to hold up a strawberry!)
     - Strawberries
     - Candy Chocolate
     - Parchment or Wax Paper

Step 1: Wash the strawberries and let them dry.

Step 2: While the berries are drying start melting your chocolate in the microwave according to the instructions on the bag or by using a crockpot or double broiler. *tip: If using multiple colors to decorate your strawberries just melt one at a time so none get over cooked.

Step 3: Once the strawberries are fully dried its time to decorate! Dip and decorate your berries with the chocolate then let them dry on the parchment paper. Need some decorating inspiration? Here are some great holiday colored berries you can model yours after.

Step 4: When the chocolate has dried it is time to create your tree. Starting at the bottom of your Styrofoam cone take a strawberry and connect it with the toothpick. About half of your tooth pick will be in the strawberry and the other half in the tree. Continue adding strawberries, one next to the other, in circular rows until you reach the top.

Step 5: Find a pretty cake stand to put your beautifully decorated strawberry tree on for all your guests to see and then enjoy!

If you have any leftover strawberries you can enjoy the extra treat! Only 18 more days until Christmas! What are you planning on making in the kitchen this holiday season? Happy Holidays!
