Marshmallow Christmas Tree

Marshmallow-Christmas-Tree-on-Tree

 

This is a super quick Christmas treat that the kids can make by themselves. It takes about 5 minutes to put together and then sets in the freezer for 10 minutes (a few minutes extra if you add the ribbon).

Marshmallow Tree

Ingredients:

  • 16 marshmallows
  • 50 grams good quality white chocolate
  • 15cms Christmas Ribbon

Marshmallow Tree

Method:

  1. Break chocolate up into a small microwaveable bowl.
  2. Heat on high for 45 seconds, then stir.
  3. Heat on high for further 15 second intervals until completely melted.
  4. Line a small tray with baking paper.
  5. Dip a marshmallow into the chocolate, so it is covered with about 3mm chocolate on the base.
  6. Place marshmallow onto the baking paper and begin making row of 5 marshmallows. Gently press marshmallows together as you build the tree.
  7. Continue this process, making rows of 4, 3, 2 and 1.
  8. Add the final marshmallow to the base of the tree. Keep excess chocolate.
  9. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  10. Take marshmallow Christmas tree out of the freezer and peel off baking paper. Gently spoon a teaspoon of melted chocolate onto the back of the top marshmallow.
  11. With the end of the ribbon, make a loop and place the ends of the ribbon into the chocolate.
  12. Place the tree gently back on to the baking paper and place in the freezer for a few more minutes until the chocolate has set.
  13. Place the marshmallow tree into a cellophane bag and tape up. If you live in warmer climates, I recommend storing it in the fridge.
