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.
