Ingredients

  • 1 roll puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 10 sturdy large chocolates

Instructions

  • Pre heat oven to 350°.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out dough on parchment paper.  Cut 12 strips lengthwise.  Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.  Remove from fridge and fold 10 strips of dough accordion style, start with a small amount and widening as you go (until you reach the end).
  • Place a long skewer in the center from the base to the top of the tree.  Place on prepared cookie sheet.  Once all 10 strips have been made,  sprinkle with sugar mixture.  Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden.
  • The last 2 strips use to make your mini stars for the top of the tree.  If the strips are too narrow, then knead together,  re roll with a rolling-pin and cut out. (or just leave an extra wide strip). Bake stars for approximately 10 minutes or until golden.  Remove and let cool completely then dust with icing sugar.
  • Place a star on the top of the tree and place the stick in a sturdy chocolate of choice.  Enjoy!

CINNAMON SUGAR

  • In a small bowl combine well the sugar and cinnamon.
