At Christmas Time, people are baking batch after batch after batch of cookies. All of those cookies are absolutely fantastic, but today I have an impressive change of pace from cookies! These Christmas Trees are made all from store-bought supplies (Reese’s Cups and Hershey Kisses). A little bit of Melted Chocolate and Sprinkles and you are moments away from adorable Hostess Gifts, Party Favors, great start to the Perfect Holiday Gift, or just a great addition to your Holiday Sweets!

DIY Reeses Christmas Tree

 signage for Reeses Trees as GiftWhen I created these, they were the “Thanks for Coming” Favor that I had set out for our Holiday Party this year (you can get a copy of the sign I had next to the trees at the bottom of the post, just right-click to save the file).
