Christmas Chocolate Trees : Creative Mondays Blog Hop …

Hello and welcome to Creative Mondays hosted by Clairejustineoxox and Judy-H-JS Thought.

A linky party where you can link up and share all your creative post each and every week….

Looking for a small handmade gift to make?

I made this recipe up yesterday and was very pleased with them – they look sweet, taste great and don’t cost much to make…. with no baking involved!!

Makes 6

Serves 6-12 (half is just enough at a time)


  • 200g White cooking chocolate
  • 50g Cranberries dried and sweetened
  • 50g Toasted flaked almonds

You will need:

  • Christmas muffin silicone tray


  • Place some cranberries at the top and bottom of the Christmas silicon tray, sharing evenly between the 6 holes.
  • In the middle of each place the almonds.
  • Melt 100g of white chocolate in a microwave according to packet instructions and place a few spoonfuls on top of the almonds and cranberries until shared out.
  • With a fork gently mix the chocolate with the almond and cranberries, not to much so the cranberries and almonds show through ( once turned out) but enough to hold them all together.
  • Melt the remaining white chocolate and drip spoonfuls into the moulds so all the corners of the moulds are filled with chocolate, spoon any remaining chocolate in the moulds.
  • Leave to cool.
  • Once cooled place in a refrigerator to set for a few hours. 
  • When set place in a airtight container until needed…
