Christmas - Edible Trees
4" round, flat cookies
White cake frosting
Cone-shape ice cream cones (not the flat bottom kind)
Green food color
Assorted little candies such as M & M, Skittles or other little shapes
Take some of the frosting and coat the top of each round, flat cookie to look like snow.
Sit a cone in the middle of each, open end down.
Add green color to the rest of the frosting to shade you like and frost each of the cones.
Stick on candies to decorate the trees. (For additional decorating ideas, see the Parting Shots, below).
Billie in FL, who shared this recipe at nancys_kitchen.com, said, "Sometimes I'm able to find the little chocolate candies that are wrapped like a package, and put those around the bottom. Other than that everything used to decorate the little trees is edible! The kids love these and when they were small they always helped to make them. Have fun!"
