It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...so why not kick off the holiday season with a batch of Reese's Christmas Trees? These three-dimensional, tasty treats are easy to make and are sure to spread smiles this Christmas. All you need are a few sweet ingredients--what are you waiting for? Let's plant some Reese's trees!

Materials:

  • Betty Crocker Whipped Fluffy White Icing
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Minis (unwrapped, the kind you buy at the check-out)
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures (larger than the minis, individually wrapped in foil)
  • Reese's Pieces or m&m's

Step 1: Unwrap Reese's Cups

Dump out some Reese's minis (the smaller ones) onto the work area. Then, grab a handful of Reese's miniatures (the larger ones), and start unwrapping! If you want to peel them easier, put the Reese's cups in the fridge for a few minutes. Once you have a sizable amount unwrapped, it is time to assemble the trees!

Step 2: Assemble the Trees

First, take a larger cup, and put a dollop of icing on top. Then place a smaller Reese's cup on top of the first. Now turn the tree upside-down. Drop some icing on top (which is the very bottom of the actual tree), and place a right-side-up smaller Reese's cup on it. Now turn the tree right-side-up.

Step 3: Top It Off

To top your creation off, pour out some Reese's pieces or m&m's onto a plate. The yellow Reese's pieces work well for a star, while the red m&m's look festive. Squirt icing on the very top of the tree--you do not need much. Pick out your topping, and place it at the top of the tree.

Step 4: You Are Done!

Continue making Reese's trees until you have quite a number of them. Good job! Now you have a batch of Reese's Christmas Trees that are sure to bring your family and friends joy during the holiday season! Merry Christmas!

Christmas and reeses! Two of the best things on the planet!
