What you need…


Chocolates, chocolates and more chocolates! I’d recommend about 5 bags of fun-size chocolates in a variety of flavours. These often go on sale in both Coles and Woolworths, so it pays to be patient and stock up for a good price. Here’s what else you will need:

  • Styrofoam tree: I went with the 45cm option and this was a great size.
  • Pins: the more the merrier! If you do happen to run out, a hot glue gun works just as well.
  • Star: you can buy a star, or make one! We used our Cricut machine to make a star and glued a wooden skewer in the middle so it could be stuck into the top.

Building Christmas tree

The best part about this DIY chocolate Christmas tree is that the ids can get involved! In fact, I set my 8 and 6-year-old daughters loose on it and they wanted to do the whole thing themselves. 

It’s easiest to do it layer by layer starting from the bottom and working your way up.

Building Christmas trees

Don’t be too worried about creating a ‘perfect’ look, it all simply comes together as you layer. Just try and cover up as much white space as possible.

Ideal Teacher’s Gift

End-of-year teacher gifts are always so hard to sort. This is the perfect way to make a statement, while making sure all the teacher’s receive something they can share.

Handy hint: I usually try and gift this chocolate Christmas tree in early December, so it can sit in the staff room and get picked away at in those last weeks of school.
