                             Made With Peanut Butter Cups

Materials Needed

1 package (2 cups) white chocolate peanut butter cups
2 mini white chocolate peanut butter cups
1 bite-size white chocolate peanut butter cup
12 ounces white candy coating
1 wide-mouth 16 ounce canning jar with lid
1 cream-filled sandwich cookie
2-4 tablespoons white nonpareils
baker’s twine or holiday ribbon
piping bag or zip-top bag
your choice of holiday-themed sprinkles such as stars, candy canes and metallic candies.

Prep Tree Materials

Carefully remove the peanut butter cups from their paper liner and set aside. Heat white candy coating in the microwave at 100 percent until melted (about 30 seconds) and transfer it to a disposable piping bag (or zip-top bag) with the tip snipped.

Assemble Tree

Begin building the chocolate tree with one mini peanut butter cup turned upside down (Image 1). Pipe melted candy on top and add a large peanut butter cup turned upside down. Pipe melted candy on top and add the second large peanut butter cup on top turned upside down. Pipe melted candy on the center of the peanut butter cup and add a mini peanut butter cup turned upside down. Finally, pipe melted candy on top of the mini cup and add the bite-size cup on top turned upside down (Image 2). Let the assembled tree stand until completely set, about 10 minutes

Decorate Tree

Before decorating the tree, re-heat white candy coating if needed in the microwave. Use melted candy to attach sprinkles and dragees to the tree (Images 1 and 2). Let tree stand until the candy is set, about 10 minutes.
