Ingredients

  • 2 pints fresh strawberries washed and completely dry (21 strawberries are needed)
  • 1 10 ounce package white chocolate melting wafers, I love Ghirardelli
  • 2-4 honey roasted or sugared pecan halves
  • Cookie or cake sprinkles I used Wilton Jumbo Lightbulb sprinkles for the lights and ChocoMaker white candy shreds for the snow.
  • 1 whole star anise for the star atop the tree
  • edible gold glitter to brush on the star anise

Instructions

  1. Melt ¾ package of the white chocolate wafers in a microwave-safe bowl per package directions (30 seconds on defrost, stir, then 15 seconds. Stir and repeat until the white chocolate has melted). Do NOT over heat – the chocolate will sieze (harden).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray the paper with cooking spray.
  3. Dip each strawberry into the melted white chocolate and place on the prepared parchment paper. Place the strawberries in the fridge to harden.
  4. *I made a six-tier Christmas tree and used 2(or 4) pecan halves for the tree trunk, 6 of the largest strawberries for the tree’s bottom tier, then 5 for the next higher layer, 4, 3, 2, 1 for each ascending tier and ended with one star anise at the top.
  5. In a small bowl, melt the remaining white chocolate wafers and add green food coloring. Mix well then pour into a piping bag (or something comparable). Pipe the green white chocolate, like garland, over the tree and add the tree light and snow sprinkles. Top the tree with the gold star anise.
  6. Enjoy!
