A Magical Sweet Tree
At last, dessert time has finally arrived! After years of Christmas Eve, Christmas log, maple pie and chômeur pudding have already proven to be classic holidays desserts. This year, amaze your guests and treat yourself with a new kind of dreamy dessert composed of multiple treats: a true sweet tree!
This gourmet dessert will make the happiness of children as well as young-at-heart adults and is so impressive that it can serve as a centerpiece for your table.
To recreate it, you will need:
- Cream maple fudge
- Homemade donuts
- Candy canes
- Cake stand
You could also add cookies, pieces of cake, gingerbread, brownies ... it's time to please the tastes of all members of the family. You can prepare some of this dessert yourself, but if your fudge is not up to your great-aunt's, do not hesitate to turn to locally-made products, available at your local grocers. In addition to giving a boost to businesses in your area, you save a lot in preparation time.
Follow the steps below to assemble a Christmas tree with sweet products and local desserts.
- Choose a very large plate or a nice cake stand.
- Arrange homemade donuts in a tree shape. If necessary, use toothpicks to keep the pieces in place.
- Place squares of maple cream fudge and small meringues at the base.
- Decorate with colorful popcorn and mini Christmas canes.
You can assemble the tree up to a few hours in advance (it does not require refrigeration), then surprise the guests with a beautiful dessert. Invite the children to grab pieces as they please and let them get their hands dirty! Try to live the Holidays with fresh eyes and a young heart. It will be a guaranteed magic moment that will bring you back to childhood.
Dessert is served, bon appetit!
