My Strawberry Chocolate Truffle Tree!
|Cinnamon dusted Styrofoam cone|
Now you can make your truffles from several easy recipes or from scratch should you like. I made these fool proof Chocolate Oreo truffle's that I tried out last Christmas. I found these to be easy to make and they taste awesome! I added the link below should you want to try them out.
I used 2 pounds of fresh strawberry's and I washed and cut the green tops off . You will need wooden picks cut to 1 1/2" length. Starting at the bottom of the cone, insert the picks into the foam cone, about 1 1/2" apart, and then attach the truffles and strawberry's in rows until you reach the top.
I made 5" and 7" strips of chocolate fondant to place in between the layers to fill in any open gaps on my tree.

Some of you might be thinking this is still way to much work, so I am going to simplify it for you some more. Here are a few quick alternatives you can do and still have your truffle tree! First, you can buy truffles of your choice and unwrap them and place right on the sticks. You can also top your tree with a bow and fill it in with ribbon instead of fondant. Just remember you can always simplify to meet your needs!
