Preparation:

Grab a stick. At a slight angle, place a marshmallow on top of the stick and dip it into a bowl of melted chocolate. Let the stick rest in the fridge.

When the chocolate is chilled, dab two dots of white frosting onto the top side of your marshmallow and stick on your candy eyeballs.

To add a nose, dab one small dot of red frosting at the bottom of the marshmallow (about an inch below the eyes).

To set the antlers, add icing to the bottom of two pretzel bites and place them on top of the marshmallow.

NOTE: To make this recipe, you'll need brownies, either pre-made or store-bought. (Need a brownie recipe? Try one of these.)

Preparation:

Using a circular cookie cutter (or the top of a glass), cut little holes out of your brownies.

Take a strawberry and cut off the top with a knife.

Add frosting onto the top of the cut-out brownie, then place the strawberry on top.

Add a small dot of frosting to the top of your strawberry.

CRU DE TREE

Ingredients:

Broccoli
Carrots
Cherry tomatoes
1 styrofoam cone
Plastic wrap
Toothpicks
Red and yellow peppers
Cauliflower

Preparation:

Take your styrofoam cone and wrap plastic wrap around it.

Stick toothpicks onto the bottom of your broccoli pieces. Starting at the base, stick the broccoli onto the cone and work your way up.

Cut carrots and cherry tomatoes in half and stick in toothpicks on the inside edge. Place onto the cone at your own discretion, depending on how you want to decorate.

To create garlan, wrap thinly cut pieces of red and yellow pepper in between the broccoli.

Cut a thick piece of yellow pepper. Stick a toothpick onto the bottom and place the pepper on top of the tree.

Place the cone on a plate. Add cauliflower around the edge to create a snow-like look.
