These cute christmas trees is a no bake sweet. They are really easy to make, you just have to have some patience because there's some waiting time for the drying.
- 300 g shredded coconut
- 200 g sweetened condensed milk
- Dark chocolate
- Coconut oil
- Shredded coconut
- Green fruit coloring
Mix the condensed milk with the coconut, until you have a cohesive mass. Place the coconut in a baking pan lined with parchment paper. And press it to an even layer about ¾ inch (2 cm) thick.
Cover the pan with som plastic wrap, and let it sit to dry for 4 hours or over night. Remove from pan and cut into small pointed triangles, see picture.
Let the triangles dry for a bit.
Add the additional coconut to a plastic tub (use an old one or a cheep one) pour some drops of food color into the coconut, and shake to color the coconut.
Melt chocolate and coconut oil in an double boiler. You should temper the chocolate for a better result.
Dip the triangles in the melted chocolate and sprinkle with the green coconut.
