Every year my kids and I like to create a Holiday food craft, and this year we made a Cookie Christmas tree and decorated it with candy.

The tree is made out of nested star cookies in graduated sizes which are then stacked up to make a tree shape.  I frosted the cookies with white icing to give them a snow covered look, and then used royal icing to secure the Sixlets and Shimmer Stars to the tree.

Decorating the tree was a little frustrating, because the candy was so small.  We worked from the bottom up, and it was easy for us to knock a lower row off as we added the candy.  But we persevered, and the final result was worth the effort!  I love the clean look of the blue, white and silver candy, and this makes a great centerpiece for our dining room table.

  1. I would make something, oh yes… not sure if it would be a cookie tree or something far less original. I would definitely eat some of this candy as well!

  2. I would definitely make something with these sweet candies. I loved the fall colors with their sheen but the silver, blue and white look like snow and so elegant that they would look fabulous on a cake. Might have to make an adorable cookie Christmas tree to decorate

  3. I know that a lot would be eaten by my family but I love baking so I would try to make some goodies for the holidays. I’m sure my coworkers would like some too.

  4. I would give some of the candy to the kids and use the rest for some holiday recipes! I make a rice krispy wreath every year and I think I would use the Christmas colored Sixlets to make “ornaments” for the wreath! The possibilities are really endless!

  5. I would love to use it to make something for the holidays like you did in you post! It looks fabulous and I’m not a very good baker, so it would be fun to make a no bake and still be able to eat some of it for my kiddo’s!

  6. *sigh* I get so tired of the browser wars and constant “improvements” I am having so much trouble with the blogs in IE.. the rafflecopter forms not showing up.. but they show up in firefox… I know it’s their “wars” and such.. oh well… I would keep this for ME! I bake for the holidays, I host for the holidays and OH my the kids LOVE when G-Ma has candy. It is special because normally we never give them any!

  8. We are planning to eat it, it is beautiful and I crave chocolate and these would hit the spot, and I have 7 grandkids so it would be no problem.

  9. The candy would be shared with friends and family, there is always a few people who didnt get any christmas gifts at get togethers and this would be perfect to give to both children and adults. Happy Holidays!

  10. I just discovered these and bought some to use as decorations on my sugar cookies. I like the different shapes – a change from M&Ms.

  11. I would share the candy with my girls and boyfriend of course. I like the ovation oranges in different flavors. Some of the best chocolate.
