Coconut Yule Trees Recipe

People love these trees at Christmastime because they're so festive-looking and more fun than the standard holiday candy. If you like coconut, you'll love this recipe, too. I freeze the undecorated "trees" in an airtight container for up to a month. -Michelle Retterer, Marysville, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flaked coconut
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 to 4 ounces dark chocolate candy coating
  • Vanilla frosting, green sugar and assorted sprinkles

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a waxed-paper lined baking sheet; refrigerate, covered, 1 hour. Shape into trees; return to baking sheet.
  • 2. In a microwave, melt chocolate coating; stir until smooth. Spoon over or dip trunks of trees; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Decorate trees as desired with frosting, green sugar and sprinkles. Yield: 2 dozen.

"We have made these every year for several years. I suggest making the trunks skinnier than you might think because they get thick with the chocolate."
