These white chocolate trees were a breeze to make.  Melt white chocolate in a double boiler.  Transfer white chocolate into a small pastry bag & cut a small tip off end.  On wax paper, drizzle outline of individual white chocolate trees.  Use a swift motion to create the whimsical outline.  Dust with clear & silver sprinkles. Use edible iridescent glitter to finish.  Once cooled, lift carefully with spatula. Place trees on top of a store-bought cake.

These trees are stunning in person!

Want to beautify store-bought sugar cookies?  These cookies are absolutely gorgeous!  My photographer, Jessica, couldn’t believe I whipped these up in just minutes.

Melt white chocolate in a double boiler.  Place 1/2 of the store-bought sugar cookie into the chocolate & carefully tap excess off.  Place on wax paper to cool. Let stand for a minute or two before applying sprinkles. Use a mixture of clear sugar sprinkles & metallic silver sprinkles to coat white chocolate side.  Allow to cool on wax paper before transferring.

Serve these custom cookies at your next dinner party or package individual ones as a small gifting.  Your friends & family will ooh & ahh!  For more ideas & inspiration, view the holiday issue of The Party Dress magazine!

Enjoy!

XOXO,

Jill
