Be patient.

Don’t get stressed and don’t rush.

This recipe is supposed to be fun!

Wait for the chocolate to set.

I’m all about cutting corners when possible, but definitely let the chocolate set before moving onto the next step in the recipe.

Be creative.

This is your recipe and your Christmas tree creation.

Use whatever colored sprinkles you want and even add some edible pearls!

The sky’s the limit on Christmas tree decorating!
