Some years, my boys and I make these little candy trees for our Christmas table. We place one next to each plate, along with a place card and this little poem:
The pure green color of the stately fir tree
remains green all year round,
depicting the everlasting hope of mankind.
All the needles point heavenward,
making it a symbol of man’s thoughts
turning toward heaven.
I love all the symbols of Christmas and I am always looking for fun ways to teach my family what they represent.
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
Candy Trees for the Table

Rollos, wrapped in gold
Miniature Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, wrapped in green
Hershey Kisses, wrapped in green
Start with a Rollo for the base of the tree. Using some craft glue or a glue gun attach two Reese’s peanut butter cups and a Hershey kiss to form a tree. Place one tree next to each plate along with the poem.
