    Chef floWer's Note:

    In 1999 my boss gave all her 60 staff members one of these tree including me. I was very impress with them but she refused to give anyone the recipe. I found the recipe in 2005 in a ‘Coles Christmas’ Magazine. It was a lifesaver for me as in Dec 2005 I was unwell for most of December and in hospital for a week. I was discharged 1.5 weeks before Christmas and very upset as I didn’t have all my Christmas shopping done. So I made these for my close family and friends. They were all impressed, I even did a few variations. Rocky Road Mixture: glazed cherries chopped in small piece, marshmallows copped in small pieces & crushed peanuts. White Chocolate Tree: Used the same mixture as the original recipe except white chocolate. Green Tree: The original recipe but white chocolate and lots of drops of green food colour. I then got clear cello plastic to cover the tree but still be able to see it then decorated with nice ribbons. Please note cooking time is actually chilling time.

      This was an awesome addition to my Holiday goodie trays. Lots of oohs and aahs from the family and friends. The presentation was great and taste even better!

      Had everything I needed when I tagged this recipe, so went right to work since it will be 1 of 2 center pieces for a Yule dinner we're having this evening! I made it with white chocolate & opted out of dusting it with powdered sugar & instead pressed colored sprinkles (or '100s & 1000s' depending on where you're from) & that worked out just fine! Then, not wanting either a regular star or a star of David, I shaped a 7-pointed shortbread star & topped the tree with that! OUTSTANDING, & many thanks for posting this recipe!

      Absolutely brilliant recipe! DD helped me make it and we decorated it with M&Ms and gum drops. DD did most of the decorating by herself and we had a blast! Looked BEAUTIFUL! Thank you, Chef floWer, for sharing this wonderful recipe, this is definitely a keeper! :)
