Makes a great gift for that someone special! This is such a wonderful way of serving your chocolate truffles at Christmas or New Year – or indeed any special winter festival! I do make my own truffles for this, but you can buy ready-made truffles for ease and speed of course! The joyful look on their faces, when they see it? A Festive Gift, Indeed!
PREP 4 HRS
COOK 1 HR
Servings 12-18 (1 Chocolate Truffle Tree)
1 kg good quality chocolate truffles or 1 kg marshmallows
For the Tree
1 (10 -12 inch) length wood branches
15 -20 small white foam balls
1 plant pot
Spray the “trunk” of the tree with a colour of your choice such as gold or silver.
Spray the plant pot the same colour, allow them to dry for at least 4 hours.
Cover the foam ball with aluminium foil and wrap securely around, taping if necessary.
Place some pebbles in the bottom of the plant pot and then push the florist’s foam in, on top of the pebbles – wedging it in so that it is firm.
Stick the “trunk” into the foil-covered ball – firmly – then push the other end of the “trunk” into the florist’s foam in the prepared plant pot. Make sure it is firm and does not rock, add some more pebbles.
Tie a ribbon around the top of the “trunk” at the base of the foil-covered ball – then tie a large bow.
Take a cocktail stick and push it into your truffle, (or other sweets/candy) then push the other end into the foam ball making sure it is securely positioned.
Do this for all the chocolate truffles until the “tree” is full.
Add some white foam packing balls around the top of the plant pot to resemble snow – brush off any loose cocoa and serve with coffee!
Don’t forget to pin your Partridge nearby! My Partridge is a glass bird, that was a gift from Joyful Cook!
