Bakes From The States Make these edible Christmas trees with just 3 simple ingredients. Perfect for homemade gifts and stocking fillers, these peppermint bark trees are from our US sister site,

  • 14oz white chocolate candy melts, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups dark cocoa candy melts, melted


  • Silicone Christmas tree-shaped ice cube tray

  1. Sprinkle approximately 1 tbsp of the crushed peppermint candies in the bottom of 18 mini tree-shaped silicone ice cube molds.
  2. Spoon white candy melts into a Ziplock/freezer bag and seal the bag. Snip a small corner off the bag. Lightly grip the bag and pipe enough candy to cover the mints by about 1/2 inch. Tap the pan on the kitchen counter to smooth  the melted white candy. Refrigerate for about 5 minutes until the candy is just set.
  3. Spoon the dark cocoa candy melts into another Ziplock bag and seal bag. Snip a small corner off the bag and pipe a thin layer of dark cocoa candy melts on top of white candy melts. Tap tray on countertop to smooth. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove candies from the tray. Wrap in cellophane and tie with a bow, or package in a gift box.
