This tasty tree requires only two ingredients and is a snap to assemble. Just gather the edge of a fruit roll as you wrap it around a sugar one "tank" to make pretty evergreen "branches."

  1. With a scissors, cut roll-ups widthwise into thirds. Gather each piece, beginning with a long side, to form ruffles. Place ice cream cones on a serving plate. Starting at base of cone, attach ruffles by wrapping around cone. Pinch at top to form a point. Yield: 2 trees.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Fruit Roll-Ups brand, which has fruit pieces measuring approximately 5 x 5 inches. If roll-ups have precut designs in them, place unrolled fruit between two sheets of greased waxed paper. Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds. Roll fruit flat with a rolling pin. Remove waxed paper.

"hostess snowballs stacked together (secure with frosting) to make the body. decorate with chocolate chips for buttons, licorice rope for scarf, mini choc. chips for mouth, m&m's for eyes and a candy corn nose. (or whatever candy you prefer) hat is a chocolate wafer with 2 oreos stacked on top (also secured with frosting)

-- i would also dip the hat in chocolate to give it a smooth finish."
