My Edible Christmas Trees

Christmas is just around the corner and there’s a lot of gift wrapping, decorating, cooking and of course, EATING needed to be done 😀 While some people don’t have anything to do, I keep myself busy and squeeze in my “me time” in between my two jobs and studies. Here’s what I got in mind.

Since Christmas is getting near and I did not had any chance to join my mom in decorating our Christmas tree, I decided to make my own mini Christmas tree that I could eat. 😀

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A box of Cherry Tomatoes
  • Thin slices of cucumbers
  • Colorful toothpicks
  • Jar of olives
  • Barbecue sticks
  • An apple
  • Fancy plate (optional)

During Decorating:

  • Cut the apple in half. Remove the stem. This serves as your tree’s base.
  • Punch in the barbecue stick thru the middle part of apple.
  • Arrange the thin slices of cucumbers according to its size (biggest to smallest) and begin punching in the cucumbers thru the barbecue stick until you reach the top.
  • Use one piece of cherry tomato as the tree’s star on top.
  • Here’s the fun part. By using colorful toothpicks, cover the base all over with cherry tomatoes.
  • Use the remaining slices of cucumbers in garnishing your plate.

*Tips:

– Colorful toothpicks may melt its color unto tomatoes as well as on your fingers.

– Put in the fridge if not eaten to remain its freshness.

– Usually served as an appetizer.

You don’t need any expensive things to have a merry Christmas, you just have to use what you have and do what you love 🙂
