Fans of Ferrero Rocher will be excited to receive a homemade Ferrero Rocher Christmas tree. And you will love this step by step guide showing you how to make this stunning hand crafted centerpiece. This is such a fun way to give the gift of chocolate!
What You Need for a Homemade Ferrero Rocher Christmas Tree
All you need for this festive, edible tree are the chocolates and some basic craft supplies from your local craft store. Try Amazon, Michael’s or Hobby Lobby, or any craft stores in your neighbourhood or online.
Along with the chocolates, you need a paper mache cone (I used 4″ cones), hot glue and a hot glue gun, a pair of scissors, and some red ribbon. If you’re keen on crafting, you might already have all of those. And then you can begin making this lovely centerpiece on the festive table, as your holiday craft project.
All of those items should be easy enough to find. But if you can’t find the cone for this DIY Christmas decoration, you could use something else like Styrofoam cones or else make your own cone with some cardboard or similar.
You can also use glue dots instead of a glue gun, especially if kids are going to be making these candy trees and are too young to be handling a hot glue gun. I like these glue dots.
How to Make Chocolate Trees
Once you know how to make candy Christmas trees, you will want to make plenty of these. It is the easiest Christmas craft project! They are great gifts for the holiday season – the time of year where we are focused on choosing the perfect gift. So how exactly do you make a chocolate Christmas tree?
Well, the first thing you need to do is heat up your glue gun. Check all the Ferrero Rocher to make sure they’re all snugly wrapped. If any seem to be coming loose, you can glue them back into the paper cups.
Now put some hot glue on the bottom of one of the candies and stick it to the tree shape cone or whatever you’re using as your mould. Repeat with the rest of the candies until your Ferrero Rocher candy tree is complete, working from the base of the cone to the top.
When you get to the top of this holiday craft, make a little hold in the bottom of the candy using a skewer or similar, and add some glue around the outside of this hole. Press the candy down firmly on top of the Ferrero Rocher candy tree.
Make a bow with the ribbon and glue it on top of the candy Christmas tree. Your easy and festive edible Christmas gift is now complete!
Other Candies You Can Use
If you’re a chocolate lover, you probably enjoy Ferrero Rocher, but not everyone does. So can you use another type of candy? Yes, absolutely. Pick the best chocolates and this will be a Christmas hostess gift anyone will love.
Anything wrapped will work, so you’re keeping the glue away from the actual chocolate. Lindt chocolate truffles would be good here and they come in different flavours so you can mix and match if you choose to.
DIY Gift Made with Ferrero Rocher Chocolates FAQs
Because Ferrero Rocher chocolates are round in shape, you might be able to see some of the cone beneath it. To hide this, you can either fluff out the wrappers to hide it or else paint it green before you start to stick the chocolate truffles on to it.
A tied red ribbon on top adds a lovely festive touch and of course this is a very creative way to gift chocolate. Another idea would be adding a Christmas star shape on top and you can cut out your own from a piece of paper and make it either white or yellow. You could even glue some gold or silver glitter to it for a Christmassy touch, or maybe green and red.
