Christmas Tree Strawberries Recipe Tips:

  • Prepare Strawberries – Cut the base of each strawberry so they are flat. Make sure to clean and dry before dipping into melted chocolate.
  • Melting Chocolate – We melted the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. But you can also melt on stovetop in a double boiler with simmering water. Watch closely so the mixture does not burn and to stirring occasionally. Melt until desired consistency.
  • Top Oreo – To help the Strawberry to stick on the Oreo, top with a small amount of melted chocolate.
  • Dipping Strawberry – We dipped the strawberry with a toothpick, but you can also dip with a fork. You can also use a dipping tool making sure to remove excess candy melt.

Christmas Strawberry Tree Variation Ideas:

  • Cookies – We used Oreo cookies, but you can use any type of cookies. Feel free to use wafers, gingersnaps, or oatmeal cookies.
  • Melted Chocolate – We love using candy melts because of all the different colors. But you can also use white chocolate with food coloring. Any candy coating will work on this recipe.
  • Tree Topper Star Sprinkles – If you are unable to find the little stars to use on the top of the tree. Feel free to use yellow sprinkles.
  • Decorating – We topped with chocolate covered strawberries with sprinkles. But you can drizzle the top with white icing.
  • Powdered Sugar – To make the strawberries have the look of snow, dust with powdered sugar.
