Quick Candies for Cookie Tray| Kit Kat Trees

Christmas Countdown-Kit Kat Trees are candy bars shaped like a Christmas tree decked out with decorative star and sprinkles!  Your kids will love making these last minute candies, make extra they won’t last long.

This is  not my original idea but thought they were so cute you needed to see how to make them.  My Cupcake Addiction created these trees as a forest. Since I am adding these to a cookie tray, mine will lie flat but you can attach melted candy melt to the bottom of the kit kat stump and stand them upright.  Although, you will have to trim the molded edge of the kit kat to make it easy to stand.  Check out Elise Strachan’s website, you will love it.

One Note:  You will want to make these last minute.  They seem to dry out and the candy melt drizzle will be hard and chip off, you might even lose the trunk if moved around a lot. For best results make these right before you plan to serve your guests or give as gifts. xo
