White Chocolate Strawberry Holiday Tree

White Chocolate Strawberry Holiday Tree

Don’t miss this FUN & SIMPLE yet oh so ELEGANT show stopping strawberry Christmas Tree using Pascha Vegan White Chocolate. Grab your crew and do it together. This recipe is one to SAVE & have on repeat.

Have fun & tag us in your holiday creations.

Ingredients:

Equipment:

  • Foam Cone
  • Toothpicks
  • Plastic Wrap

Directions:

  1. Wrap the foam cone in plastic wrap.
  2. Wash the strawberries and dry them.
  3. Put larger strawberries to the side to use along the bottom row of the cone.
  4. Melt chocolate using a double boiler over medium low heat. Once chocolate starts to melt stir until melted.
  5. Put strawberries on toothpick, dip into the melted chocolate, trying to shake off the excess, and set on parchment paper until set. We used about 7 dipped berries in our tree. You can decide what works best for you.
  6. Dip strawberries again and this time apply sprinkles and glitter before they set. Let set again on parchment paper.
  7. Start to put toothpicks in the foam cone and add strawberries going in a circle from top to bottom saving the larger berries to place along the bottom.
  8. Add chocolate covered strawberries intermittently to add a festive touch.
  9. Once tree is covered with berries start adding mint leaves.
  10. Take strawberry out where you want the leave and place mint leaf on toothpick and reapply berry. Enjoy!

Pro Tips: Placing the toothpicks in the cone first and then adding strawberries works best. Larger strawberries along the bottom work best. Sprinkle with white monk fruit for a snow effect.

Winter Wonderland Cake featuring the Ultimate Sweet Potato Frosting

Winter Wonderland Cake featuring the Ultimate Sweet Potato Frosting

The holidays can be indulgent at times but your cake frosting doesn't have to be. Make this Winter Wonderland Cake with healthier sweet potato frosting today!

 

Important tips to remember

Make sure that your cake layers are completely cool to room temperature before frosting them. If you frost them while they're still warm, the frosting will not stay in place and become difficult to work with. Another thing to keep in mind, after blending together all your ingredients for the frosting, set it aside  for a few moments to allow it some time to thicken up. Also note that frosting should be blended until smooth and creamy.

Ingredients

Sweet Potato Frosting:

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (about 1 medium potato)
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk 
  • 1 cup PASCHA Chocolate Chips, melted (we used 85%)

Christmas Tree Cake:

  • 1 recipe chocolate sweet potato icing 
  • 3 layers 8" chocolate cake 
  • Waffle Cones
  • Green icing 
  • Icing sugar 

Directions:

  • Poke holes in your sweet potato with a fork and wrap in aluminum foil. Cook in the oven at 350F for about an hour, or until soft. Set aside to cool. 
  • Melt PASCHA Chocolate until smooth. Place your mashed sweet potato, melted PASCHA Chocolate, and canned coconut milk in a blender or food processor. Blend until creamy. Set aside to thicken slightly.
  • Bake your chocolate cake layers as desired. Allow cooling before icing. 
  • Ice your cake using your sweet potato icing. 
  • Using a cutting board, cut waffle cones to various sizes. Place onto the side and top of the cake. 
  • Pipe stars onto the cones using green icing. When all cones are fully covered, dust with icing sugar to resemble snow. ENJOY!
