free tutorial on how to create a chocolate christmas tree!

Yah, I know what you're gonna say, I'm late... Christmas is here. 

Well, I had a bad case of the flu in the past two weeks. In the midst of it all I was thinking of you !
I had this great idea for a gift/ table center for your holiday dinners. 
But I guess you bought all the gifts you want for everyone. And you probably know what you'll use for decor. In the small chance you haven't had the chance- here is my idea for you. my Christmas gift to you.

My gift is a tutorial on how to make a hand crafted , easy to make, tasty chocolate christmas tree!
Let's start!
You will need everything you see in the photo: 

Click on the template, then right button click it and save it as a photo. Finally print it.
My template for 1-3 tree sizes to use all or choose the one you want, cut from regular print paper. 
A pencil ruler, craft cutting blade, strong glue, I used UHU, tape, glue gun, gold craft wall paper, a golden star attached to a toothpick, thin foam board. 

I already cut mine. You'll need three triangles. And a pair of scissors. 

Start by gluing the sides of the foam board using glue and some clear tape. 

Attach two pieces of the foam, first. pointy end to pointy end. Once arranged to your liking attach the third piece.

Looking from the bottom it should look like a pyramid- something like this:

Cut your gold wallpaper and attach it to the sides of your pyramid. 

Don't worry about it if it doesn't look perfect. you will be attaching chocolates to cover pretty much the whole thing.

Next, heat your glue gun. Place a dot of hot glue on the choclate wrapping 

And quickly attach it flose to the tip of the pyramid.

Continue adding chocolates in the same way. You can arrange them tightly close, or further apart. That's up to you.
Once you finsh one side continue to the next one. I switched colord for each side, but you can either use the same color for the whole tree or mix them on all sides.

Finally attach a heart to the end of a toothpick. using the glue gun, glue it to the top op the tree!

These trees will be a hit in your christmas party. 
You can wrap them in cellophane and give them as gifts or use them to decorate your table and serve at dessert time! A great treat!
