Amazing Holiday Appetizer Christmas Tree


Astro Weenie Christmas Tree
The Astro Weenie Christmas tree is the ultimate edible holiday centerpiece! Everyone can do this its fun for the whole family. Get creative and share your crafty culinary creations!
What You'll Need: Cocktail weenies, peanut butter, an array of bite size edibles in separate bowls and a Styrofoam cone.
  1. Cover Styrofoam cone with tin foil.
  2. Smear the bare bottom of the cone with peanut butter to “glue” it to the plate.
  3. Begin tooth-picking fruits, veggies or just about anything else you can stick a toothpick through and into the Styrofoam. Be creative!
Your Astro Weenie Christmas Tree can be sweet or savory, and just about anything will work as long as it’s edible! Don’t forget the most important ingredient of all -- the cocktail weenies!
Helpful Hints:
  1. Make sure anything that comes in a can or jar is drained overnight before putting on the tree. You don’t want a soggy tree.
  2. If your want your tree to light up, simply wrap the tree with christmas lights before putting on the food.
  3. For a star tree topper, use either a cross cut of star fruit (if you can find one) or cut one out of a yellow bell pepper.
