This strawberry Christmas tree is a must for your family & friends soirées or gathering during the holiday. Plus it so easy to make.
You can use a styrofoam tree or papiermache about 13″ tall. No need to buy one any bigger because the strawberries increase the size considerably. (You actually might want to buy one a bit smaller when you read the rest of this tutorial). Buy an 8″ cardboard cake round for stability and a doily for disguise. 3*one pound cartons of strawberries (ones with smaller berries)at the grocery store. 2 packages of semi sweet chocolate chips.
Cover the tree with waxed paper. Tuck in the ends and tape to secure it to the cone. Use melted chocolate ( you can microwaved it or melt in a pan on the stove) to stick the tree to the base. Cut a hole in the doily and slip it over the tree.
